Review: Advise and Consent (Advise and Consent #1)

User Review  - Mph - Goodreads

One of the best books I've read, period, and the political maneuvering, insight and deceit is still just as relevant and active today as it was 55 years ago. A must ready for anyone with even a slight interest in how Congress works behind the scenes. Read full review
