I commend Jim Lehrer and his publisher, Random House for bringing Tension City to print this year. With a U.S. election year rapidly approaching, the timing could not have been better for an inside look at past presidential debates by the man who served as the moderator for eleven of them. This informative book provides the reader with many interesting insights from Mr. Lehrer and former presidential and vice-presidential candidates.
This type of book is a departure from my traditional reading, but I learned a great deal about debate forums and procedures which will serve me well in the upcoming elections and televised debates. I believe it will help me make my decision on who to vote for in November 2012.
