This book isn't getting the coverage it deserves, which isn't really surprising since it makes O look like a totally weak sister. (Remember the breathless coverage of Scott McClellan's book criticizing the Bush Administration?) I could hardly put this one down, and encourage you all to read it.
It spent a little too much time on the debt debacle, but did offer some background on the construction of the stimulus and some priceless tales on O's tortured relationship with the business community. You'll find yourself wondering for the millionth time how this man got into this position and how he could have such a deficit of the interpersonal skills required of this job. You could not possibly be disappointed in this book.
I do wonder how Woodward will fare on the Georgetown cocktail party circuit.
