A wonderful read I believe it is important to read a book in the language it was written and you make that possible in most cases. There were quotes in it I didn't like. But never once - never - did I think Woodward made it up. Anonymous sources have looser lips and may take liberties. But Woodward always plays it straight.
Some books get so much press coverage that reading them seems redundant. Why invest hours in reading a book if you can just get the highlights? Other books seem to be about things that we pretty much already know. We ask ourselves if we are going to learn something new by taking the time to invest in a book-length treatment. Yes, there has been lots of press coverage of Fear. But after reading the book, I suspect that at least some of those stories were written by people who did not.
