An interesting read during the current 2012 campaign for president. I was more than halfway through when President Obama and Romney had their first debate. I wanted to pull my hair out with the mistakes Obama was making according to Westen. It's true -- you can see it wherever you look or listen these days -- we are motivated more by our emotions than our rationale during political campaigns. Democrats need to learn how to reach our emotions, which the Republicans have been doing for years. Westen raises compelling arguments/scenarios as to the lost elections of Gore and Kerry and how they could have been won (besides the fraud of the GOP....).The only drawback to listening is that I couldn't take notes as easily and the narrator's voice is annoying.
