All the Truth is Out: The Week Politics Went Tabloid by Matt Bai is, at first glance, a look at the media debacle surrounding Gary Hart's fall from grace. It certainly succeeds in bringing new insight into the event itself. It does much more, however, and this is where Bai, former chief political correspondent for New York Times magazine, really scores. This was the moment, Bai argues, when the media and politics got into bed together. The resultant offspring is the hybrid political/media circus that passes for discourse today. This is an important book, it is not just a re-telling of the saga of Gary Hart, but an incisive, totally compelling and even poignant work that follows the media down the rabbit hole that it created and maintains to this day. ~ Reviewed by Erik Barnum

The warp and woof of this children's picture book is impossible to describe in words, it is a book that must be experienced. The words lavish, quirky, and a little dark, are a start. It is outrageous and festooned with illustrations that will make you gasp. ~ Reviewed by Erik Barnum
