The Confession CD book. A fast read, Mr. McGreevey effectively paints a picture of New Jersey's byzantine political scene at the turn of the twenty-first century. In a way, the memoir serves as a "mea culpa" to all those he deceived during the course of his career.

In August 2004, Governor James E. From childhood, McGreevey lived a kind of idealized American life. McGreevey of New Jersey made history when he stepped before microphones, declared "My truth is that I am a gay American," and announced his resignation. The story made international headlines-but what led to that moment was a human and political drama more complex and fascinating than anyone knew. The son of working-class Irish Catholic parents, named for an uncle who died at Iwo Jima, he strove to exceed expectations in everything he did, meeting each new challenge as though his "future rode on every move.

In August 2004, Governor James E. McGreevey of New Jersey made history when he declared "My truth is that I am a gay American," and announced his resignation.

Now, in this extraordinarily candid memoir, McGreevey shares his story of a life of ambition, moral compromise, and redemption. From childhood, McGreevey lived a kind of idealized American life, and he strove to exceed expectations in everything he did. He won three elections by the age of thirty-six, and four years later nearly toppled the state's popular governor, Christie Todd Whitman. When he ran again, in 2001, he won by a landslide.

Throughout his adult life McGreevey had been forced to suppress a fundamental truth: that he was gay. He knew that the only clear path to his dreams was to live a straight life, and so he split in two, accepting the traditional role of family man while denying his deepest emotions. And he discovered that becoming a political player demanded ethical shortcuts at least as corrosive as living in the closet.

Written with honesty, grace, and rare insight, The Confession may be among the most honest political memoirs ever written.

I cannot determine whether this is one of the slickest autobiographies I've ever read, or a brave story of triumph self-acceptance and clarity under the eyes of a nation. Mr. McGreevy appears beguiling and smarmy. What does he want the reader to come away with from his autobiography? Does Mr. McGreevey ultimately explain the impact his sexuality on his two wives? Or, for that matter, anyone else who was left feeling somehow betrayed. But credit to him for serving prisoners.

Overall a better read than I had expected. I have some criticisms, the most serious of which is the author's inability, for most of the book, to break away from his politician's habit of campaigning. Indeed, every time things start to get interesting, he holds back. He has the politician's sanctimonious habit of bringing up his religion at every turn and mythologizing his origins. Descriptions of political wheeling and dealing are tedious and are better skimmed by most readers. And his description of rehab is cringe-worthy; how does a twelve-step program turn an intelligent and confident adult into a drooling idiot? He would have done better to go on vacation in Mexico... Finally, the book includes a picture of the author with his present partner but not a word is written about this presumed happy ending. At least an epilogue would have been nice.

A very good book. His wife's was more interesting, but McGreevey's book was more informative on how the government works (or doesn't). I look at him as a very honorable man. I would have been proud to call him my governor.

After reading his very intelligent, eloquent, well educated, humble and graceful ex wife Dina's memoir on the subject of their demise, I just had to hear his story. I went into it with a sneer on my lip, already with a negative opinion formed about this guy, already staunchly on Dina's side of the fence, wondering how he could possibly redeem himself.

As I read, I became pleasantly surprised to learn that his book was not at all a shot at redemption, nor was it a grand attempt at a sweeping apology to the world. It was simply an honest, heartfelt, deep, clear, exposed, mature acceptance for what happened combined with a clearly responsible stance about what happened, and why. It took tremendous courage to write what he did and in the end the reader is left with the understanding that, if the real truth be known, we ALL have a dark side to our lives, the majority of us are just very, very lucky we go a lifetime without having that side exposed and played out on a international stage.

Finally, you realize that this man owned up to his huge mistake, accepted his punishment without a flinch and went on to make the best of a situation, never losing sight of what was really the most important in all of this: his two beautiful little girls, for which his deep love shines throughout both books.

As a side note, Dina's book is equally as excellent and worth reading. Both of these people are of the highest caliber. Those who can call either one of them their friend should feel blessed.

Profoundly moving in it' brutal honesty! We all wear ""masks" of one type or another,having to pretend to be accepted. Ripping off the mask and forgiving and accepting ones truth,is something I doubt many of us could do. For all of us who are truly loved and accepted for who we really are is a precious gift.
Good book
