    1. This is one of 4 or 5 books on Al Gore that were written right before the 2000 election. It is primarily about his life before becoming the Vice President; there is only minimal information here about his interactions with Bill Clinton. It is a compelling story of a man far more complicated than is typically shown through the media, and the book is all the more interesting when read in 2009, when we know more fully what Al Gore's future has in store for him. There is a paragraph or two about thi [...]

    2. Al Gore is why I converted from my Republican upbringing to becoming an active Democrat.His nomination acceptance speech in 2000 was inspiring and awakened me. I read this book right after.The book is a decent accounting of Gore's life, but lacked in parts.

    3. An informative book, though not always very interesting. Gore seems to have spent his life trying to impress his family and trying to live up to their expectations. He seems in general to be a moral person with some defects: insecure, exagerates, not always able to see what is important.
