I just finished it today, got it Tuesday and have been reading chunks of it all week.

I thought it was a great read, and didn't want to put it down.

The only question I have is this:
Near the end, when Johnson tells the President that "There is another person now in the private sector who must face similar judgement..." and then Cindy calls Kane and he goes to a "double-wide" to see a woman with thick glasses and leaves the I TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY note...who was it?

Was it supposed to be Janet Reno?
I feel like Towelie from South Park..."I have no idea what's going on."

After the Branch Davidians were incinerated. Janet Reno publically stated to the Press: "I take Full Responsibility".

Interestingly enough...her theme during the Waco Hearings was more like the song.."It ain't me..it ain't me..."

Ah, now I understand...I was 13 when that went down, so the magnitude of what happened and the events surrounding it were lost on me at the time.

Thanks for the explanation!

The book is 861 pages long. The author could have edited out 250 pages of stuff and the story would have been just as good.

More people would read the thing, too.

I just read it a few months ago and loved it. I wonder why Reno was living in a double-wide?

Yeah, she took responsibility. And what happened to her? Just like every other government official...nothing. That woman should be in jail for the rest of her life.

He put in a lot of stuff about how some recent offenses to Freedom went down and a lot of insightful speeches. It isn't strictly necessity for the story, but IMHO it's very helpful for people who are new to the philosophy of gun ownership and freedom, or who just enjoy a refresher. I appreciated it.

Also IMHO, I don't think anyone who skipped it because it was 861 pages long would have read it if it was just 611 pages long.

I've had a copy of the book since 94-95.. whenever it first came out. I still haven't made it past the second chapter. I read alot and its simply written in a style that i find to be very boring.
