Elegant and entertaining,
This review is from: Only in America (Hardcover)
This is a thoroughly excellent book. It's beautifully written, and for anyone of a wonkish disposition the Inside the Beltway insights are fascinating. The serious stuff is leavened with charming domestic anecdotes about the small Frei, and the result is a highly evocative portrayal of the US. It's pretty up to date too, covering the Clinton/Obama slugfest. One very minor grouse is that there are a few glaring typos which really should have been picked up, but niggling aside, do read it.
