It never works.
In all seriousness, this book is perfectly fine. It's extremely boring (and I'm a poli sci major who actually digs this stuff!) and dry and vaguely odious, but it's survivable. I suppose the knowledge and information it provides is what's most important--and in truth, it provides plenty of both-- but it's like trying to swim in a vat of cold oatmeal. You just get stuck in the same spot and what you imagined would be a refreshing read is suddenly and most simplistically described as "gross".
I still wake up crying sometimes, terrified by the thought that it's lingering passages will never leave me...
