    Is John McCain "for real?" That's the question David Foster Wallace set out to explore when he first climbed aboard Senator McCain's campaign caravan in February 2000. It was a moment when McCain was increasingly perceived as a harbinger of change, the anticandidate whose goal was "to inspire young Americans to devote themselves to causes greater than their own self-interest".

    Shiran says: "David Foster Wallace's Best Nonfiction Work"
    "Slow moving, not really about McCain"
    Overall

    This book is not really about McCain, but rather the political process of running for president. Yes, there are a few tidbits about the candidate, but most of the attention is on the press corps.

    I was surprised by some of the language used -- but I guess I shouldn't have been based on the original intent of the author's work (Rolling Stones magazine).
