Not the best written book I've read in a while, but an some what expose on our Vice President.

I write this after reading just a few pages and looking ahead at a few places: This book is maddening, infuriating. Where is the outrage in our nation at these jackels feasting on us!?!Great book, but I have stopped reading at page 34. I CAN'T STAND IT ANY LONGER!Where is the outrage? Why isn't this man in jail? Why are we allowing this man to take our country from us?

If you want to know what makes our current VP the person he is, then this is an excellent book. It's amazing how much I learned about the man from reading this book. I don't want to judge him here, but I will say the authors are the same people who wrote 'bushwacked', so that should give you a view into the slant of the book. It was a very educational read and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see the true power behind the scenes.

quite good. written before the Scooter Libby trial was concluded. It almost felt good to read this as the history that it is, though certainly not behind id. Almost a study in secrecy, huh?

Great read. The Vice-President is definitely a silent but forceful politician
