If you are looking for a true, insightful, inside look into Palins life - then this is not it.
Not only does the author use unprofessional sexual innuendos about Palin, but he insults her christian faith and tries to make her out to be a crazy extremist.
But what really makes me laugh is the insulting gossip that he quotes as fact. His credible sources are: 'A friend of the family' or 'someone who is close to Sarah'. . . Seriously? If you are going to print that stuff you had better have sources! This is worse than a gossip magazine, I kept flipping the page waiting to hear about Brangelina splitting up again!
Anyone who moves next door to a public figure to write a hit piece on her and then whines about the flack he gets, and tries to play the victim does not deserve my respect. I was not for or against Palin, but after this book, I think I like the woman.
