    "I enjoy reading about American politics and dynastic American political families. This is a story about one of those families and love. It was an interesting read, perhaps a little outside my normal comfort zone of literature, but good none the less."

    "If you are a fan of the television series "The West Wing" then The West Wing Companion is a must have. It is essentially a description of all the scripts used to air each show. So if you don't have access to a TV you can still get your West Wing fix by reading this book."

    "If you were wondering why West Wing is so filled with intrigue, drama, and a deep mistrust, A Necessary Evil is the book for you. It explains everything- how the American distrust for government dates back to the Revolutionary war and has been passed down through the generations. While Wills's concepts are stellar, however, his writing style leaves much to be desired."

    "The West Wing was a great show about the close advisers to the President of the United States. I loved the show personally, and I love to see how television shows work in general, from the idea stage to the final product. This scriptbook shows the version of the script that Sorkin gave to the actors to perform and gives an inside look at the making of the show. While West Wing fans might want something more informative about the show, this is still a great choice for those diehard Bartlett partisans."

    "So who didn't love "The West Wing" television series? These authors have written an academic book that explores our love for the show that demonstrates the realities of politics while also allowing us to remain idealistic about the inner workings of the White House. "

    "Really loved this book. I am a total Theatre Geek and could relate to all of the trials and tribulations of Kristin's career. Her writing is light, fun and slightly sarcastic. I laughed out loud a few times. Highly recommend it for any Kristin Chenoweth/Wicked fans out there."

    "Although this book has received high consumer ratings, it does not really correlate to the TV show "West Wing". The west wing is a fictional drama portraying life in the white house, and Dear Mr. You is an autobiography of an actress. "
