In sharp contrast to his TV persona as the self-proclaimed "King of Interrupters," Chris Matthews presents his book in a well-modulated, almost chatty tone, enunciates clearly, and demonstrates an appropriate emotional range. Matthews's pleasant speaking voice has bit of an edge from his residual "Philly" twang, and although his pace is quick, it is not the rapid-fire staccato that often results in slurring in his on-air speech. The book is a delight for the political junkie. Matthews's insider's position offers a peek behind the curtain, through anecdotes and observations, at some of the most memorable players and events of the last 30 years. The author's performance of his own work only adds to the enjoyment. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
