Darlings of political campaign consultancy, with polar opposite party affiliations and political sensibilities, the Carvilles just happen to be happily married, proud parents and creators, as well as narrators, of another co-memoir. Their personal and political crazy quilt is sewn with their distinct and provocative viewpoints, with their beloved New Orleans as an additional major player. The timeline is from the 1992 presidential campaign to the quite recent history of their CNN departure. Sadly, Carville rushes his portions of the narration, which lack any noticeable emotion or sincerity behind the words except when he grows angry, and then it seems like the reserved anger employed in CNN and Fox News segments. Matalin's voicing sounds sincere but is understated and monotonous, as if all in one key. While the dual points of view are initially an interesting approach to discussing both worldly and family events, the novelty grows thin.
