    This book is bangin'!!

    Wow, I never knew >1000 pages could go by so quickly! It's written with clarity and humor... absolutely great. If anyone hasn't developed a deeper respect for all of 88's candidates (Especially Bush and Dole... their WWII stories were INTENSE..) after reading this, then, uh, you should read it again... i dunno. hehe. An absolute classic-I enthusiastically recommend it to political junkies of both the left and right.

    Recommended - is you really like politics

    This book certainly gave a look at the candidates that I had not seen before. It changed my opinion of some of them, not for the better, and left me wondering why I had not been aware of what he was describing for others. Having followed the primaries and general election that year (as always) I wonder why my perception of the candidates was so different from what the author described. As an independent I have a pretty objective view which is how I make my decision for voting.

    The chronological order was a big distraction in my opinion. Changing from candidate to candidate was not a problem, but hopping back and forth in years for the same candidate was very distracting. I had to go back to see what the time-frame was for the earlier section and sometimes re-read parts to make sense of it. He could have still changed from candidate to candidate but have kept the time frame in chronological order for each of them. It would have been more readable.
