Hayes quite persuasively shows that there is no contradiction between the Dick Cheney who refused to topple Saddam as Defence Secretary in and the Dick Cheney w This wasn't a bad book, but it wasn't a good one either. Hayes quite persuasively shows that there is no contradiction between the Dick Cheney who refused to topple Saddam as Defence Secretary in and the Dick Cheney who did as VP in However, saying that Hayes laces his book with a saccharine like view of Cheney's life, and spends less time on Cheney's time as VP than you would have thought.
I was surprised when I was half way through the book and was still only on Cheney's time at the Pentagon. It goes without saying that this isn't a critical evaluation of Dick Cheney, but you want to read this book either because of that reason or in spite of it. Either way it is still a useful part-history of Cheney's career. Mar 01, Daniel rated it really liked it Shelves: politics-history.
Dick Cheney was once revered for his level-headed fair-mindedness; now he is vilified as an incarnation of a devil. It is worth asking what precisely he has done in the last 5 years to warrant all this vitriol; the careful portrait in this book suggests the answer is "not much. If we follow them down a foolish path, we are to blame as well.

Dec 27, Pamela Okano rated it liked it Shelves: biography. The description of Cheney's background and personality and his basic conservatism, which he was able to subordinate during his work for Gerald Ford, seems balanced and rings true. But when the author, who works for a conservative publication, gets to Saddam Hussein, the Iraq War, and WMD, suddenly almost everything that is anti-Cheney is untrue and a smear job by the Democratic Party and the liberal media.
I've also read Angler and the two books are like the proverbial ships passing in the night The description of Cheney's background and personality and his basic conservatism, which he was able to subordinate during his work for Gerald Ford, seems balanced and rings true.

Cheney: The Untold Story
Jul 02, Tom Schulte rated it liked it. This book didn't make me a Cheney-supporter and I doubt that will be its general effect or was even its purpose. However, it is enlightening the extra detail provided on such galvanizing issues as Iraq-Uranium-Africa Wilson's superficial investigation supported the infamous words but exposed as a forgery the specific invoice turned up by the Italians and Plame-gate Libby was practically on a one-man witch hunt, but Armitage acctually first put Plame out there, with Woodward.
This is an in This book didn't make me a Cheney-supporter and I doubt that will be its general effect or was even its purpose. This is an interesting book about an interesting man transforming a bland political office in interesting times. This is a very kind portrait of Dick Cheney, showing mostly his positive side. By all accounts, Cheney avoided the limelight, was very private, and stayed in the background, so knowing his true influence in the Bush Administration isn't crystal clear.
This book presents him in a positive light, and might be considered an alternate view of what one would think after reading Gellman's book "Angler", or Jane Mayer's book "The Dark Side". I imagine the real Cheney lies somewhere between the two view This is a very kind portrait of Dick Cheney, showing mostly his positive side.
I imagine the real Cheney lies somewhere between the two viewpoints. Oct 29, Nathan Foy rated it really liked it.
Good view of Cheney, Hayes is a fair-minded author. Cheney in sum appears to be a humble hard-worker who is fiercely loyal to those superior. Some great anecdotes on his relationship with Alan Simpson.

And revealing stories about his relationship with his family. Wish Hayes would have gotten more of his worldview but you can infer much. Interesting how Cheney evolved from supporting the removal of Iran embargo to supporting Iraq invasion. Aug 25, Melissa rated it liked it. This was fine. I don't know what made me pick it up.
I didn't finish it My favorite part was visualizing Dick as a drunken Yale frat boy surfing down the stairs of his frat house. The end. Dec 18, Tara rated it it was ok. I read this book because I was curious if this man could possibly be as terrible as I had suspected. It turns out he is worse than I thought and has been conspiring to shape America in his vision for a very long time. I would recommend if you have some dark curiosity, as I did, but it is not for the casual reader.
Jan 01, Michael rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: All. Look in the dictionary next to intelligence and you'll find a picture of Dick Cheney. Critical yet fair here are Dick Cheney warts and all. Sep 24, Ryan rated it it was ok. Nothing revelatory in these pages, especially not about Cheney's formative years at UW Madison, which was about half the reason I picked this book up in the first place.
