With Bush as President, many suspect that the most powerful individual in the US is Karl Rove. Although Rove is officially listed as White House Senior Advisor, responsible for managing the Office of Political Affairs, the Office of Public Liaison, and the Office of Strategic Initiatives at the White House, he is, in fact, Bush's chief political strategist and his "political brain." Rove's hand is seen in virtually every presidential decision -- whether it involves steel import tariffs, extending the war on terrorism, the tax cut, the Middle East crisis or the environment.

James Moore and Wayne Slater, the veteran journalists who wrote Bush's Brain, have written a new, updated version of their original book, ROVE EXPOSED: How Bush's Brain Fooled America. This engaging book offers readers a condensed version of Bush's Brain, plus new material highlighting Karl Rove's political maneuverings since the last presidential election.
