Robertson Dean has a voice that exudes gravitas. It's deep and serious sounding. It's the kind of voice that might narrate political ads, making ominous claims about a political opponent. The text he is narrating is not always compelling, and the reading of seemingly lengthy charts doesn't work well for an audiobook. Despite some limitations of the text, Dean handles it deftly. The book examines members of the political network that worked to defeat George W. Bush in 2004. York describes the workings of labor unions, 527 organizations, political parties, newly created political groups, and longtime liberal and left-wing activists. It's a useful introduction to the complexity of modern campaigns. M.L.C. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
