    1. If you're like me and you would like to beef up your knowledge and understanding of current political issues, then this book is for you. It doesn't spend too much time on any given topic but gives you just enough information to understand what some of your more politically-inclined friends are talking about around the table.

    2. I picked this book up in the library after voting in my state primaries. I was in a civic-minded and curious mood and I thought this seemed like just the book I needed to do my homework on the main issues at stake.

    3. This book provided helpful information on all the political issues of the day. I found it particularly helpful on healthcare issues. The book discussed both sides of each issue.

    4. This book is 4 years old now but many of the chapters are still good. Do you have questions about major political topics? Try this title for some of the answers.
