Reviews - What do customers think about Gore: A Political Life?

Hatchet Job...;  Dec 3, 2000
I'm not particularly a Gore supporter but in my opinion this is a "hatchet job," done with a dull, rusty hatchet. Not worth the read; surely not worth the price. I give it one star only because there is no provision for giving it none...or "negative" stars. I'm sorry I bought this, didn't check it out of the library, wasted the money.
Telling the Truth About The Man Who Can't  Oct 7, 2000
Finally, somebody had the courage to shine the light of truth on a man who is deeply superficial.
Skip it.  Feb 11, 2000
I always relish reading a biography of insight and wit with a keen eye for what is relevant and significant- that which reveals not only facts but innovatively deduces motivations.

Unfortunately, this is not such a book. Zelnick's writing is pale and his research is weak. He has not discovered his subject anew, as they say. He seems content to diminish what potentially could be a memorable biography with National-Enquirer glibness. His book is replete with unwarranted speculation and he lacks the discipline of an objective journalist. I think the book is compromised by the fact that the reader has to contend with the author's personal political agenda.

I truly do not think there has been a first-rate biography of Gore written yet. He may be someone that we will all have a better idea about once history gives us some perspective. We shall see.

Bob Zelnick is definitely No Bob Woodward  Jan 19, 2000
This book was a clear dissappointment. Mr. Zelnick does not give us any more of an understanding of Al Gore that any of us could have gotten from researching Mr. Gore's public statements and positions. There is not even an ATTEMPT to uncover any "behind the scenes" conversations or the background for decisions. A very uninformative book and Mr. Zelnick puts way too much of his own opinion into the analysis (superficial that it is) of Mr. Gore the politician.
Negative, even where it doesn't have to be.  Dec 23, 1999
I can take the good and the bad with any candidate. I love presidential elections and relish the time of year they occur. I read whatever I can get my hands on regarding any and all candidates, Republican, Democrat, etc. - I enjoy learning about the people running, one of whom, will probably end up being president.

This book could have been better, except for the fact that the author takes any and all occasion to make something negative, even if the occasion is not warrented. I have to say, I also don't like "white wash" books that make a candidate look like the perfect person, who's never done anything wrong (who of us can really say that?).

Early on in the book, Zelnick mentions that soon after graduating high school, Gore broke up with a steady girl friend. Zelnick then mentions that she burned the love letters he sent her at a time in her life when she was about to be married. Up to now, this is a nice fact, good reporting, but then Zelnick adds - "or so she claims!" It's like having a book written by Hard Copy! Obiously Zelnick is one of those writers who after being told by the subject that they will not cooperate and asks that his friends take the same stance cannot rise above this, but feels that he needs to exact his revenge by making the smallest fact seem negative.

This is a shame as the body of the book, the facts, the research, etc. are quite good and thourough, which is why I give it two stars instead of one.
