BOOK REVIEW by OnTheIssues.org:

This book is how political authors SHOULD write books -- stick to the issues, and leave out the horserace and the politicizing.

Rogak has written several others in this same series: Howard Dean In His Own Words; Michelle Obama In Her Own Words; and Colin Powell In His Own Words. Presumably more in this series will be forthcoming; we recommend them all (and we will excerpt those which deal with presidential contenders!).

-- Jesse Gordon, jesse@OnTheIssues.org, May 2007
