If you follow politics, then you'll love this book. The key point is not really the information given, but the analysis. Yes, very good analysis of the politicians you love (or maybe not). But mostly how much you are going to laugh. Some of these articles are very funny, but take note that they are "funny" only because of some of the absurd ongoings in american politics. I highly recommend the Arlond Schwarzenegger article (it's so funny!).<BR/>It is a GREAT read. Buy it!<BR/><BR/> P.S. If you follow politics you might find some articles that you have already seen if magazines such as Esquire, Vanity Fair or The New Yorker.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
