Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, the Powerful Forces That Put it in the White House & What Their Influence Means for America - Russ Baker I would give this book 3.5 stars if I could. It is not an easy to book to read, being incredibly dense and packed with facts and details. The author did a commendable job arranging so much information in a coherent manner, but I still had to flip back and forth in the book to pick up small details that I'd missed earlier and that were necessary to make sense of the page I was currently reading. It is a frightening look at politics and the non-existent distance between industry and Washington. The military-industrial complex is so woven into the fabric of Washington that you can't tell where one leaves off and the other begins. It touches everything. Kind of makes your skin crawl. After finishing the book, one could absolutely sit back and say, "Ah, that explains a lot."
