Great service....no complaints!

Seems to be objective. Is very enlightening. Summary appears to be: She will stand for principle if she thinks her party does not, but at the same time is over the top partisan, and works extremely hard at her craft. My personal view is that excess partisanship does not serve the country well. Both parties need to work together for the good of the country and, I believe the book makes the point, that she has plenty of room for improvement.

Book Review: Madame Speaker

This review is on the third book I have bought on or about her.

Two review sources have been used to help in this review: Amazon (AZN) and Barnes & Noble (B&N). An interesting sequence of Customer reviews was noted as follows:

Thirteen reviews were recorded on AZN by Peter Richardson. He was responsible for 13 out of 21
reviews. Now 21 reviews is a small number by what one would expect to see on Amazon, but
large in this sampling. His third review covered this book. Richardson notes that "Readers
expecting a full blown, soup to nuts critical biography won't find it here." He reports that the
picture that emerges from this book "is that of an organized, hardworking, business like
leader." He goes on to report that he enjoyed this book. He closed, by calling it "Very
worthwhile."
However this accolade was followed by:
"(Full disclosure: I edit Pelosi's daughter, Christine.)." This addition, while one can appreciate
The motive behind it, is surely one that would not give one much confidence in this review.

One review was recorded on AZN by C. Williams. This seven line review starts out declaring that the author "has done a superb job pulling together a coherent and well told story of the rise of Nancy Pelosi." He concludes with the observation that this "would make an excellent book group choice for women seeking inspiration." However, in my reviews on two other books on Ms Pelosi, I have noted that she may be suffering from a royalty fixation. This would not be a good fit for women "seeking inspiration."

One review was recorded on AZN by Joseph A. Hennessey. This review was substantially larger at 17 lines, primarily used for inputs from two historians: Edward H. Carr and Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr. He concluded it by commenting "that this book is a must read." However, that was a conclusion I simply could not share.

Zero reviews were posted on B&N. However, Kirkus Reviews posted the following partially edited review: "By-the-numbers bio of the Speaker of the House." Former San Francisco Chronicle Washington bureau chief Sandalow seems unsure whether to like, dislike or fear Nancy Pelosi, whose career he has been covering since 1987 (though, by his account, whom he first met only in 1993). "I have had a hot and cold relationship with Pelosi," he writes. Apparently Madam Speaker returns the favor, for this is an unauthorized biography chockablock with imagined conversations and scenes that speak to lack of access, unless he were hiding under her bed when the call from the White House came to congratulate her on her election to the nation's third in command. We will never know. Admittedly, Sandalow notes, Pelosi disdains the press; her attitude probably won't be improved by this too often ham-fisted piece, with all its unnecessary flourishes and choppy paeans to Pelosi's legendary multitasking abilities ("Each day was a logistical labyrinth. Carpools. Fund raising letters. School plays. Donor meetings. Birthday parties. Printing deadlines. Teacher meetings. Slate cards. Soccer practice. School supplies.)
Conclusion. The number of customer reviews seen hear speak for themselves. Thirteen, one, one and zero reviews are almost trivial numbers compared to what one would expect to see, and seem to declare there is not much of a book here, and again a book I am sorry that I bought.

Liberal progressive trash! Nancy PIGlosi is human garbage!

Edward Hallet Carr, in his seminal account of the study of history, What Is History?, writes, "History cannot be written unless the historian can achieve some kind of contact with the mind of those about whom he is writing." Yet, there exists a fine balance between a writer achieving disinterested contact with mind of those about whom one writes, and serving as an instrument in advancing or undermining the power of those about whom one writes. Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. writings on the Kennedy years illustrate the danger of the later. Marc Sandalow's book Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi's Life, Times, and Rise to Power demonstrates the insight that can be achieved by the former. Sandalow's unauthorized biography draws upon years of critical reporting on Nancy Pelosi during his tenure at the San Francisco Chronicle. Years as a professional (and some times adversarial) questioner of Pelosi has yielded a narrative account of her rise to power that spares few punches yet unapologetically recognizes Speaker Pelosi's achievements where such recognition is due. E.H. Carr also wrote, "History is progress through the transmission of acquired skills from one generation to another." Speaker Pelosi has certainly acquired skills. Marc Sandalow's book is a reliable, objective, disinterested conduit through which those skills will be transmitted to a new generation of political leaders. This is a must read for those seeking to understand today's political environment, how a woman politician gathered and consolidated power, and where the Democratic Party will be heading in its recently-achieved post Clinton era.

I normally have no interest in politics, and only happened upon this book because my husband was reading it. At first, I was only flipping through it to make another point to my husband about how different our literary tastes are (I'm a literature fan...he's a political junkie). Before long, I was actually reading the damn thing! The author has clearly been a close observer of both Pelosi and California politics for some time, and does a fine job mixing the personal with the nitty gritty details of a life in politics. This book has heightened my understanding of politics in general, and deepened my appreciation of the achievements of a woman serving as speaker of the house, something we are starting, for better or worse, to take for granted.

Awesome book! The life of Nancy Pelosi is very interesting and I encourage everyone to read her story.
