    1. While I enjoyed this, perhaps a bit less than the first book in the series. I like the concept of someone getting into politics who is truly committed to changing the way of "business as usual". But, I kept waiting for the star of the show to do something that had to do with the people of our country - a bill that made things better, some sort of reform to legislative process - instead, the book focused almost entirely on election campaigns, both his and others, with nothing really changing othe [...]


    2. The story starts off a little slow and I was worried that the entire book was just going to be some sort of climatic build-up like in the Lord of the Rings. Yet, I was pleasantly surprised-over and over. I loved the way the story easily transitions from small town class room to capital hill. Despite the changes, I felt like the characters I came to love remained true, and I also learned to love a few more characters introduced along the way. The author really did save the best for last so I eage [...]


    3. Awesome!After reading "iCandidate", I hoped, but didn't think the sequel could be better -- but it is! Engaging, informative, satirical, enlightening, and now, suspenseful. I am an arm-chair political geek, and what I enjoyed most with this Michael Bennit installment, is how I now look for "tells" when I watch and read anything about politics in mainstream and social media. Gotta go nowtime to download book #3!


    4. The book kept my interest almost through the entire book.The book kept my interest almost through the entire book.l think it was about as good as the first one. I know some things were not. believable, but sometimes wish they were today with our political system.


    5. The inside glimpse to American politics Fast paced as was Michael Bennit #1. Entertaining as it was educational. Pardon me for rushing off but I just downloaded The Speaker. Bennit #3.


    6. Really Great SeriesI read all the books in this series one after the other. Each one was as good as the one before - they never lost momentum as so often happens. Really worthwhile read!


    7. I surely enjoyed this book! Even for being a sequel, it kept me interested to the very end.d there will be another! I can't wait!


    8. Nicely done second book. Makes me want to learn more about American politics (I'm Australian)Looking forward to the third book. You just can't leave me hanging like that.
