Audible Editor Reviews

Senator Harry Reid has been the Senate Majority leader since 2007, and his practical nature and years of hard-won wisdom come through clearly as he discusses his book The Good Fight: Hard Lessons from Searchlight to Washington. Senator Reid doesn't shy away from tough questions on topics ranging from Iraq, the economy, problems within the Senate - including deep partisan wedges - and the challenges of a patent-reform bill. Journalist Jeff Greenfield peppers Senator Reid with critical questions, and the pair's sometimes-antagonistic back-and-forth is the source of many entertaining sparks.
