Known and Unknown

Rumsfeld's book is so far not nearly as sleep inducing as George W. Bush's. I'm impressed so far. His website has lots of capabilities that actually makes the George W. Bush Library website look a little humdrum.

While the general glossing over techniques are also present in Rumsfeld's book, they seem much more effective. Rumsfeld portrays himself much better as a man of ideas caught up in events. President G. W. Bush in his book seems to lack the "man of ideas" part of that equation.
