    I usually read pretty fast but reading The Bridge has been slow going. I do find it very interesting overall, but I also feel it gets bogged down in way too much detail sometimes. I mean, I just don't need to know the first and last name and detailed background information about every person who attended a particular meeting with him back in 1992 or whatever. I keep reading because there is so much really interesting stuff in there too, but I feel it could use a good edit to make it more readable.

    •  It took me quite a while to read it, too. (2+ / 0-)

      A few times I thought I must have skipped a page or two because I felt a little lost. Then at other times it was great that he filled in some blanks left by Obama and Mendell.
