Surprised Russ Baker got writting this book without having an 'accident', so glad he did. 5star

As we enter a possible new chapter of 'Jeb' Bush....there's stuff we need to know about the Bush family, and this book is a cracking start. Very readable, but does flit quite a bit chronologically between 'Poppy' (dad) and junior (son), which can be a little distracting. Mr Baker has clearly done his homework on this project and interviewed a lot of people.
Very in-depth coverage of the build up to the JFK incident focusing more on the interlocking relationships of influential business and political leaders who had issue with JFK. A lot of new analysis with Junior's lack of time with the National Air Guard drilled into and his numerous positions on energy companies with CIA links . If I had one disappointment it would be the lack of coverage on the Crisis Management Team which was set up shortly before the assassination attempt of Reagan which neatly allowed Poppy Bush a back door to the job he had been after for so long, but than darn Reagan refused to die.
All in all, a very good job indeed. Happy to recommend this to anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of the power politics of those who wish (and do) rule us.
