Review: The Governor by Rod Blagojevich

The book was released on September 8. I had thought there would be an unofficial embargo on the book and that I might have to travel out of state or go through Amazon to get a copy. fortunately, though, the library had copies, and I was able to check one out less than two weeks after the release.

Prior to the release, the book had been described as not only a memoir to the former governor's days in office, but maybe as a future text for political courses. It is illuminating, and because the author has had experience with politics at the state and national levels, I'm going to accept much of what is said in the book as that - his experience.Collapse )
