A reviewer over at has had the excellent idea of reviewing books he hasn’t read. Many readers find his reviews very helpful, and I can see why. His name is Jon Swift, and he’s worth checking out.

Here’s a sample.

Rebel-in-Chief: Inside the Bold and Controversial Presidency of George W. Bush by Fred Barnes
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $16.29

Puppy love, January 31, 2006
I have not actually read this book but I have heard Mr. Barnes speak about it and he sounds like a 14-year-old girl in the throes of puppy love with a bad-boy upperclassmen who sneaks behind the bleachers for a smoke. I think this is a much better attitude than that of the usual biographer who sounds like one half of a cynical, bitter old married couple constantly harping on their spouse’s human flaws. Apparently, Mr. Barnes completely ignores President Bush’s human flaws, which is very refreshing. In fact, in this book I don’t think President Bush sounds human at all.
