The author provides some new insight into the Bush Family secrets,but leaves others untouched. Baker fails to even remotely discuss the rumored extra-marital affair(s) of Poppy Bush. And, while he touches upon Barbara's failure to attend her mother's funeral, there is no mention of what she and Poppy did to occupy their time the day their first daughter was buried. And what about the large amount of speaking fees Barbara has received for her "canned" twenty minute presentation. And one has to wonder why the author offers little, if any, insight into the life of Jeb Bush. While Baker can be commended for the information he provides the reader, there was so much more he left hidden.

Same old stuff

If you are looking for a serious, historical, objective, un-biased look at Bush this may not the book for you. Save your money and go to Russ Baker's web-site and read his articles that he's been penning on Bush all of these years for free. Same old stuff, nothing new. ...

To me it's all an overview of his work from The Village Voice, LA Times, The Nation, and so on. A worn out subject.
