Maybe there is a reason this book was in the self help section of the library (self help in becoming a journalist). Heavy in politics and a little boring following the campagne trail of '72 leading up to Nixon becoming president again against the backdrop of candidates denouncing him even though they voted for the war in vietnam themselves. The parallels to today's politics is to strikingly close where political parties are set up to get rid of a candidate rather then propose a solution, the "anyone but nixon then and the tea party lets get the black predisent out". Hunter was insightful but never took it too seriously because of the Gonzo Journalism he did. Good book to read but even I only got half way through it but will finish it another time. Too heavy a dose of this guy will make me think evil things the government is doing to us.
