I enjoyed this book very much. More than anything, I became immersed in the fact that this book points out how terrible politics really are in the place of real events...then and now. The entire time Garfield was trying to settle into his victory as the next president, he was mired down in petty issues between every politician around him. This led to him being shot by a man who chose to add another chapter to the circus. At that point, the final chapter would cause Garfield to suffer horribly for 80+ days before dying. A death caused by doctors who were mired down in their own petty issues instead of doing what was best for a patient who was obviously in distress. The greatest insult to Garfield is in learning that the "treating" physician was named Willard Bliss and that his tremendous failures in considering other opinions aside from his own gave a whole new meaning to that old phrase "Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise".
