I love political history told from insiders' perspectives. This is well done, and seems credible to me. Mr. Hermann is my favorite reader. He's consistently excellent.
This CD is a great listen. Better, I thought, than the 1% Doctrine by Suskind. I've rented and read several books on the Bush administration, the CIA, and the Iraq and Afghan wars. This book verifies much of what others have written, but goes one better because it comes from someone who was actually there and observed the truth. It's pretty scary; it almost seems as if the country is being run by Stepford people.
Excellent rental with plenty of detail on the Bush administration. O'Neill is a seasoned veteran of gov't service and his perspective on the Bush team is both interesting and disturbing. A definite thumbs up!
The reader was good and the material certainly kept my interest. Made for an educational commute.
Why can't this information become more public. The US voting public really needs to see the true side of this administration and the BS that is going on. I sure wish Paul O'Neil would go on the talk show circuit and tell his side. Mary
