probably a ripping good book for those awash in American politics. Interesting for others.

Bob Woodward is far removed from the intrepid investigative reporter who helped bring down Richard Nixon in the 1970s. As usual with his more recent offerings, he offers insight into the tensions that go on behind the scenes of official Washington, but it is nothing of a smoking gun kind of story that he was once famous for. Still, this provides some information into how Barack Obama and John Boehner tried to enter into an uneasy alliance to stop the Tea Party which hoped to force the US into debt default in 2011. Not "All the President's Men" by any means.
