    In his unmistakable voice and with an insider's eye on history, former Vice President Dick Cheney tells the story of his life and the nearly four decades he has spent at the center of American politics and power. In My Time is truly the last word about an incredible political era, by a man who lived it and helped define it - with courage and without compromise.

    Story

    Just finished the book - I really enjoyed reading it. His book provides a wealth of background information and stories from his political and personal life spanning from the Nixon/Ford years up through his time as Vice President. He has a no-nonsense, tell it like it is attitude on issues that were vital to protecting our country. He stood on principle and didn't sell out our country to the misguided notion of peace through weakness. Some of these negative reviewers are rather silly in their comments - you can tell that many of them didn't read the book. They play along with the mainstream media's vilification and nauseating repetition of the same unfounded claims without providing much proof for their claims. Cheney was someone who's dedication and service to this country was an exemplar compared to other politicians who held his position. Maybe you can fault him for his steadfast desire to protect this country at a time when we faced unprecedented risks. How soon many of us forget the climate in this country after 9/11. The book brings out interesting background information on the dealings with other countries in the Middle East and with the Soviet Union. Whether you like the guy or not, he presents a well reasoned presentation of the Bush policies and the background for our country's actions after 9/11 and through two wars. By providing this context, you come away from reading the book feeling that Cheney's work will be looked upon by historians as representing a critical perspective to the events over the last decade. Highly recommend reading the book!
