I read this book because I knew very little about Bernie Sanders, and why he has become such a phenomenon. Even though this is an unauthorized biography, the author has put forth a very good effort to explain the man. A very quick read, this book would be a great one for anyone who wants to be able to discuss the current presidential race intelligently. Whatever your politics. And it is current, covering Sanders up through November of 2015.
I can't say that I will vote for him or not. That is not the purpose of a review. What I can say is that, with the help of this book, I think that I understand Sanders, his beliefs, and his plans. You cannot read it and not become better advised.
Highly recommend it!
I received this book as an advance copy from NetGalley, in exchange for a fair review.
