    I liked this book, it was pretty dry and political, but it was interesting to read specifics on the politics from the 50 s leading to current political structure, and seeing how a person s career can be ruined so quickly When I told my mother I was reading this book, she said this guy was corrupt, so even though he wasn t convicted of the crime, that was his legacy.
