It’s quite the adventure, in Cheney’s memoir, to be in the executive and legislative inner sanctums and policy-making forums of the nation from the early 1970s through the end of the George W. Bush administration. Edward Herrmann delivers a subtle, assured, patrician-sounding performance, aptly conveying Cheney’s focused conviction regarding the appropriateness of the great power that is placed in the government’s executive branch. Herrmann’s pleasing, authoritative tone provides perfect pacing, and he commands the material as if it were his own. The narration sounds utterly engaged and is presented in an unbiased, straightforward manner. The former vice president’s political fans and foes alike will take note of the often-brutal insights. Cheney himself delivers both the prologue and epilogue in a calm and unadorned manner. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2011]
