As someone who grew up in Maine and met Senator George Mitchell a few times, I was really hoping that this book would dive deeply into the process and what was at stake in each of the negotiations outlined to better understand what he brought to the table because Maine was very proud to have him as Senate Majority leader and the peacemaker for many international conflicts. But instead it reads like a survey of his life at these times and doesn’t get into the details of how he was able to find compromise, just that compromises were reached and how he was always trying to do best by the people of Maine, US, Disney shareholders, baseball fans, Northern Ireland, Middle East, etc. The stories are good and often have a lot of wit and colloquial charm to them, but lacked some depth on the negotiations process itself.
Additionally the audio quality is very choppy and sounds like five different audio engineers worked on this production with different mics, punch-in points. A little cut-and-pastey.
