In today's age of information overload, it's extremely difficult to find the time and energy to read the important political books published each week. Yet, how can you truly stay politically informed if you aren't reading the latest releases?At the site, you can read the sample free summary (PDF) of Chris Matthews' Hardball:
With a subscription to Capitol Reader, you'll receive the top political books summarized down to eight concise pages. These book summaries allow you to read the key points and arguments being made by political leaders, satirists, pundits and journalists without spending the time it takes to read their entire books. This service will help you find the books that really interest you and deserve more of your attention.
Not only will you drastically slash your reading time with our summaries, but this service is especially helpful if you like to keep up with what the other side is saying. Capitol Reader is a nonpartisan service and each week, summaries are alternated by party affiliation. The summaries do not offer judgment or opinion on the content in each book. Instead, the ideas, viewpoints and arguments are presented just as the author has intended.
How Politics Is Played Told By One Who Knows The Game, including a bold-type misuse of "principal" for "principle" that I suspect wasn't in the original.
