A VERY intimate review of Bill Clinton's trouble with Monica.
A brutally honest look into the White house before during and after the Clinton/Lewinsky scandal...a note ...this book can be slightly provacative and graphic...but that makes for a more enjoyable read...definetly not for Republicans or close-minded individuals
Great commentary on political America - but don't listen with kids or elders in the car. The language is a bit "blue" at times!
"Not for Republicans"? Not for Democrats either, I would have said - to anyone who's looking to read a justification of his or her party's leaders or actions.
Reads like fiction - which most of it ,ust be, since I don't see how, short of science fiction, the author could be inside the mind of someone else's penis (if such a thing has its own mind).
Be warned - colorful language barely begins to describe some of the writing here. I found parts very hard to listen to, and I didn't really believe much of it -- but there's no denying it's a rivetting read/listen. You do have to bear in mind that this is one rather jaded and problematic author's deconstructionist take on Clinton, Bush, et al. Therefore I learned more about sustaining a reader's interest than I did about politics or history.
Interesting in its own right but certainly not for everyone.
Joe Eszterhas has done some fine scripts (though they're not the ones he is known for) and he certainly knows how to hold a reader's interest. This book covers the Clinton scandals and candidate Bush from a unique perspective; he blends his research into these events with wildly fanciful reconstructions of what was going through the minds and reproductive equipment of those involved. So it's fantasy, in a way. I guess. It's given a brilliant (but hardly impartial) reading by Ed Asner and others. Parts were hard to listen to as they went over my personal glurge limit, but I give it a grudging recommendation, with a strong warning for those sensitive to explicit sexual material and/or foul language.
