Dean has really redeemed his reputation in all his good writing, this book included. The book is extremely informative about the history of the Bush era secrecy, deceit and usurpation that has long histories in the behavior of the two top figureheads of the period. It is easy to lose track of all the shenanigans that Bush and Cheney were documented to have engaged in long before (and not so long before) their accession to the highest office. He also intelligently weaves in parallels with the Nixon experience (even psychoanalyzing the various characters' motivations), in comparing and contrasting the situation with Watergate etc. (For instance Bush talks about his office in the third person, "the president needs this" "the president's power is thus" etc.) Dean is a lawyer and lawyerly sets out a lot of the information. I got the sense some of it was a little rushed, but that is not a reason not to read it. Actually quite a readable book too. Good work.
