Publishers Weekly, 2012-01-02 The 46th and perhaps most contentious vice president of the United States speaks his mind in this sprawling firsthand account of his political life. Naturally, the author's slant is quite noticeable, particularly when he explains his role in the decision to invade Iraq following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Narrator Edward Herrmann delivers a compelling, straightforward performance with a journalistic tone. He gives the material the respect it deserves without editorializing. Cheney-who also provides narration-proves to be an excellent storyteller, ably reading his story with great respect for those who have lost their lives in America's war against terror. While this memoir is unlikely to change Cheney's hardened and callous image, it does offer a unique look at one of the most painful and controversial times in American history-and for that this audio is certainly worth a listen.
