Buck Up, Suck Up
and Come Back When you Foul Up
James Carville & Paul Begala
For those of you who have already read anything written by James Carville- his new book, co-authored with Paul Begala is titled Buck Up, Suck Up and Come Back When You Foul Up. Nuf said. For those unacquainted with Carville, read on.
Reading James Carville is like spending the evening with an old friend. In 1999, as vice-chair of the Whatcom County Democrats, I was invited to speak to a high school civics class. To prepare, I read Carvilles 1996 book, Were Right, Theyre Wrong. Not only did it give me facts necessary to answer students questions, but it reminded my of how great it is to be a Democrat.
Buck Up, Suck Up . made me feel great, too. Sometimes the laugh-out-loud wit comes thick and fast. Sometimes the authors use the words of famous leaders, old adages or even mothers advice to explain their concepts. Sometimes its clear that the authors couldnt come to an agreement about how to make a point so they included their deliberations as part of the text. However they present the issues, the book is consistently entertaining and friendly.
Buck Up, Suck Up is a great opportunity to
discover James Carville. And now that Ive discovered Paul Begala,
Ill be adding his name to my list of must read authors.
