I am halfway through Rick Perlstein's The Invisible Bridge. Really a great book, but I always stay up too late reading (cause I can't put it down!).

Would you say the book is non-biased/neutral? If so, I may get get this myself.

Dude doesn't like Reagan much, but I doubt you'll have qualms with that Wink. As political books go, it's palatable.

goooddeee! I just wanted to make sure I won't be subjected to very subtle conservative reprogramming.

Thanks mr Bessell! Kiss

Big fan of Perlstein. Even though you get the idea that he's liberal (which he is), he does very well at illustrating the competing social movements that resulted in things going as they did (in my opinion). It's also fun to read how the liberal consensus was torn asunder. Only read "Before the Storm" and "Nixonland", but I greatly enjoyed both.

He is? I went over his wiki, I assumed he was more conservative than liberal as all his work seems to be about conservative-related stuff.
