BOOK REVIEW by Massscorecard.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!).
