Praise for Bush's Brain "Love him or hate him, Karl Rove is one of the most brilliant and successful political consultants of all time. In this riveting account, Wayne Slater and Jim Moore tell how he got there." --Paul Begala, CNN's Crossfire "Bush's Brain isn't a hatchet job on George W. Bush. In fact, the two authors largely dispel the myth of Bush's supposedly deficient IQ. But, more importantly, they lay bare the story of how Karl Rove may be the most powerful man in America. It's a compelling story told by two veteran Texas journalists who don't need a briefing packet to understand the men they're writing about." --Philip Bruce, KCET/PBS Television, Los Angeles The most powerful individual in the United States may not be George W. Bush. It is probably Karl Rove, the President's brilliant advisor. Who is this man and how did he acquire so much power? Having watched in awe for over fifteen years as they reported on the rise of Karl Rove, Moore and Slater expose the brutal and sometimes morally questionable, but invariably effective ways in which Karl Rove?and America's political system--actually operate.

The second, and more substantial, of the recent books about Bush's longtime political partner, Karl Rove. (Austin American Statesman) Should force questions about having a win-at-all-costs political operative shaping White House policy as our nation moves toward war over the world's protests. (Austin American Statesman) Bush's Brain is also attracting attention for its stark claim that Rove has become America's "co-president". (The London Times) "If you want to understand the president's underlying motives, read the new book on his guru, Karl Rove, Bush's Brain. Penned by two crack Texas reporters, it discloses that in 1994 Mr. Rove, a hired gun for Philip Morris, persuaded the gubernatorial candidate George W. Bush to make tort reform a priority." (The Wall Street Journal, March 6, 2003) "Its authors dispel the convenient myth of Bush's sub-standard IQ and describe instead an able but reluctant politician made to fit the role created for him - a creation of Rove's ambition." (Ecologist, July 2003) "...the points are interesting...this is defiantly one for readers..." (Lloyds List, 8 August 2003)
