I thought this was certainly one of the better books i have listened to. First, the audio is great, probably the best I have experienced to date (have listened to about 15 books). I might be able to do without the Clinton impersonations, but they were pretty darn good.
I found the topic fascinating, especially given the upcoming elections. Basically this is a look at the way modern media is affecting national elections. About 1/2 way through the book, I thought this was the best book I had listened to yet, but I agree with the other review that after a while, it seems like they are repeating themselves a lot. while the book is supposed to center on Clinton and Bush, in fact, it seems that 75% of the book is on Carl Rove, whereas I found the parts about Clinton more interesting. In this way I wish they would have done more to contrast and compare the two distinct styles these last two "winners" used. also, I wish they were more frank about the fact that they would not be writing this book if about 200 votes in FL had gone the other way in 2000. All in all though, I thought it was fascinating and a joy to listen to.
