Carlson might be the conservative answer to Hunter S. Thompson--gonzo journalism for those with Ivy educations and blue-blood breeding. While he revels in pranks, irreverence, and the dissection of public figures, Carlson is a savvy commentator and highly skilled TV journalist. Always clear about his objective--the irresistible story that engages his mind and sense of humor--and wisely distant from the machinations and corruption of the media, he delivers engaging and witty commentary. If you like lucid, cogent, and facetious reportage larded with personal observation, give a listen to this book. D.J.B.
