BOOK REVIEW by OnTheIssues.org:

This is not really a ďbookĒ in the traditional sense: itís one of those new-fangled Internet books which are printed the day you buy it. That means itís very thin and very up-to-date. It feels more like a long magazine article with live updates.

This book was printed on June 8, the day I ordered it, and it already had updates on Libya (which occurred just a month or two before, a much shorter timeframe than is possible in traditionally-printed books). It also includes an up-to-the-minute list of opposing GOP candidates (which changes every week now).

The content of the book itself is a long editorial from a Bachmann fan. It addresses her strengths in the Republican primary and then in the general election against Pres. Obama. It has no criticism of Bachmann, and while it addresses her strong points, it ignores her weak points and hence is not the most meaningful analysis. But itís the only book on Bachmann currently available, and its new-media format makes it intriguing.

-- Jesse Gordon, editor-in-chief, OnTheIssues.org, June 2011
