I heard a portion of this book on the radio and was excited to check it out. Barney Frank's story is so important and needs to be well-told, but this is not the book. The content is too episodic, and is shared without context. Barney Frank as a narrator is not the best choice. I look forward to a full biography that provides context and is accessible to the general reader who is not a politics-wonk.
