"A learned, engagingly discursive, funny, sometimes even jolly ramble -- literally -- through the landscape of American presidential assassinations...Vowell makes an excellent traveling companion, what with her rare combination of erudition and cheek." -- Bruce Handy, The New York Times Book Review
"[Vowell's] gift is one of cosmic inclusion -- allowing the natural collision of intellect and personality, rigorous research, and generational quirks." -- Joan Anderman, The Boston Globe

All toghetter a great book that not only makes you laugh, but also educates you.
SV is a fairly partisan Democrat.There are digs at Nader, George W Bush (although no-one else has drawn the parallels between Iraq and McKinley's occupation of the Phillipines). However this is only a couple of paragraphs in a 200 page book.
One passage deals with her and Nick Hornby in Gramercy Park,NYC, home to a statue of Edwin Booth [brother of John Wilkes Booth].
