A whirlwind of comic brilliance
Mo Rocca spotlights and parodies the "underworld" of cable network news reporters and reveals to us a whirlwind of comic brilliance. "All The Presidents' Pets" is "Thurber" meets "The Twilight Zone". It will be difficult to listen to Candy Crowley with out picturing her speeding down a highway listening to Waylon Jennings... By the way, "Royal Gift" is my favorite presidential pet. -Maritza QuinteroWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Very Very Funny
Mo has written a satire of media and politics figures in which he makes fun of himself and his celebrity as much as he does other notable names. Very funny! It's hard to look at these media people the same way again.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

All The President's Pets
I decided to buy this book because I have seen Mo Rocca on VH1, The Today Show, and Fox News numerous times and he is quite funny. I really enjoyed reading this book, which is amazing because I can rarely pay attention to anything with any kind of a plot at all and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading. I will never look at Wolf Blitzer, Helen Thomas or Laurie Dhue the same way again. I did, however find one mistake: towards the back of the book, there is a list of all of the president's pets; I noticed that Harry S Truman's name had a period in it after the 'S' There is NOT a period there. Truman's parents gave him the middle 'name' S because his grandfathers (Anderson Shippe Truman and Solomon Young) both had names that began with an S. (not to be too picky or anything) The author is an extremely creative person and I cannot wait for a sequel!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
