The Politician: An Insider's Account of John Edwards's Pursuit of the Presidency and the Scandal That Brought Him Down - Andrew  Young Well, although I enjoyed reading the account of this drawn-out disaster and I felt sorry for many of the characters involved (and believe they all could have benefited from an extended session with the therapist), the book is an appalling look at behind the scenes politics. No lie is too egregious if there is money at stake. On the one hand. Then there is the brutally callous way people were used and discarded...and their needy, sycophantic behavior that made it easy for others to use and abuse them. Holy cow. Nobody comes out looking good in this book.
