Publisher's Summary

SAVE TIME &UNDERSTAND MORE!
WARNING: This is not the actual audiobook, This Town by Mark Leibovich. Do not buy this summary & analysis if you are looking for a full copy of this fascinating and often hilarious audiobook, which can be found back on the Amazon search page.
Instead, we have already read This Town and pulled out some of the key take-away points and insights to give you a comprehensive chapter-by-chapter summary & review. In doing so, unfortunately we do not have the space to include all of the many important ideas and anecdotes found in This Town. To get it all, you should first order the full audiobook.
Packaged together in an engaging and easily digestible format, this concise summary & analysis works best as an unofficial guide or companion to listen to alongside the audiobook.

Reveling in the swamp

I can't bear to listen to this whole book, yet anyway. So, it does me a service to let me peek at the revelers in this den of snakes, Washington DC, and return to my regular preoccupations. It shines through this summary that the author enjoys relating all this, and dissecting all these strange fauna and flora of that (thankfully) faraway capital, preening and elbowing each other and in their brief star-turns in that weird spotlight. One couldn't make this sort of thing up. I'm sure the full-length book has all sorts of gaudy apparitions. I like how it puts supposed opponents in smarmy clubbiness in some of these scenes. But as a previous practicing lawyer who had cordial lunches with opponents, I sort of understand. But not completely. I can certify I was not screwing MY clients; I was being civil, and letting our civilized contest remain within its arena. I can only shudder and hope this is true of these folks. (Fingers crossed, nervous expression.)
