Drawing upon her celebrated columns, with a new introductory essay, Dowd probes the topsy-turvy alternative universe of a group she has made recognizable by their first names, middle initials, nicknames, or numbers (41, the Boy Emperor, Rummy, Condi, Wolfie, Uncle Dick of the Underworld, General Karl, and her own nickname from W., the Cobra) as they seek an extreme makeover of the country and the world.
Bushworld is a book any reader who cares about the real world won't want to miss.

Fantastic, Erudite, Superb Research
Unlike some of the recent "election time" books (Unfit For Command springs to mind), this book is filled with careful research (what would you expect from Maureen Dowd of the NY Times of course) and tight prose. Very entertaining and very much to the point, this book presents a revealing look at one of the most influential families in this country. For those who claim some bias, they should fact check this book, which stands up to some serious scrutiny. If they don't like what they read, the blame lies squarely with the conduct of the Bushes, and not with the messanger. In addition to being well written, this book is also well narrated, as are so many of the books that make their way to audible.com.

Smart and Funny
Maureen Dowd's analysis of the current Bush administration draws on her experience as a journalist attached to Bush 41's administration, when she got a close-up view of the Bush family. Drawing on popular culture and her upfront and personal knowledge of global politics in the Bush context, Dowd views it all with a kaleidoscopic perspective and biting wit.
