Would you listen to Power Wars again? Why?
Maybe. It's not really the kind of thing that you listen to over and over, but I have gone back already to review certain sections.
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Charlie Savage has a narrative about how Obama has continued or expanded many of the Bush-era national security moves and he does a great job of explaining why. A large part has to do with the inertia of bureaucracy and legitimization of previously expansive views.
Which scene was your favorite?
No specific scene stands out, but the overall image of lawyers sitting around and creating a legalistic framework for these national security goals is repeated over and over. I have this picture in my head of lawyers sitting around conference tables arguing each of these issues as they strive to implement process.
If you could give Power Wars a new subtitle, what would it be?
The new boss is the same as the old boss...

Good for those readers who enjoy legal theory. Although not dry by any measure of the word, don't expect a page turner.
