Let me start by stating that I'm a life-long democrat, voted for Mr. Gore, have nothing for contempt for our current admin, etc. Nevertheless, this book is not good. I believe we effect change by bringing out solutions, not by placing blame. A lot of the book is about the "bad Bush" and, even as a congregation member, gets old and feels tired. What one ends up with is a dissertation that is technical and an assault on Bush that is tasteless.
I can't imagine, unlike his Inconvenient Truth work, anyone being persuaded by this book. You either recognize and agree or are turned off by the approach, much like the Parental Warning stickers for music. And, considering the material's importance, that's a shame.
A great book! Martin shows incredible insight into how males and females differ in expectations, approach, etc. to life and each other. Prior reviews point out the sex and depressive situations, but, for a lot of people, that is how they go through relationships and life... and Martin does an excellent job of shining light into those corners of people. I'm glad it doesn't have a "hollywood" ending, because that would cheapen the whole experience of the book. I wouldn't be surprized if this book received several literary awards.
