    Truth examines Bush's political roots as governor of Texas, delves into what is known about his National Guard duty - or lack of service - and sheds light on the solidity of the documents that backed up the National Guard story, even including images of the actual documents in an appendix to the book. It is peopled with a colorful cast of characters - from Karl Rove to Sumner Redstone - and moves from small-town Texas to Black Rock - CBS corporate headquarters - in New York City.

    Protagonista di questo libro per ragazzi è l'Olanda, con i suoi antichi e curiosi costumi, e il racconto si snoda accanto alla descrizione di paesaggi, antiche leggende, e storie, tanto che il libro finisce per essere una guida fuori dell'ordinario alla scoperta di un piccolo grande paese. Curioso anche che l'Olanda abbia oggi un ruolo di guida nelle ricerche sui risvegli dopo coma o periodi di inconscienza, e che proprio un evento simile sia al centro di questa storia, narrato con dettagli coerenti con ciò che oggi sappiamo dell'argomento.
