Казалось бы, среди американских президентов не было менее подходящего, чем АБРАХАМ ЛИНКОЛЬН, – единственный из хозяев Белого дома, чье формальное образование ограничивалось годом в начальной школе, а политическая карьера до выдвижения на высший пост – одним сроком в Конгрессе (неудачно) и двумя кампаниями за место в Сенате (проиграл оба раза). В президенты его избрали лишь потому, что полдюжины куда более заслуженных государственных мужей блокировали номинацию друг друга.

She teases and deceives. She writhes her way across the nation and beyond, seducing us all with her light and noise. Love her or hate her, you can’t escape her. She’s the American media–and nobody understands her better than Scott Singer.A rising star in the world of public relations, Scott is a master at manipulating the news, especially when the news isn’t good for his clients. To journalists, he’s the dark prince of deception. To others, he’s merely the product of an amoral corporate culture. Not that their opinions matter to Scott, who shelved his ego years ago. It’s the only way to stay sane in a business that thrives on flying off the handle.The trouble begins on the first day of Sweeps, when a fifteen-year-old girl goes on a fatal shooting spree in her high school cafeteria. For the news networks, it’s a ratings bonanza, especially when clues suggest that the tragedy was loosely inspired by a popular rap song. Suddenly America’s outrage is focused on Hunta, a young L.A. hip-hop artist who was on the verge of becoming a mainstream star. Now he’s Public Enemy Number One, and his life is about to get infinitely worse.Saving Hunta could be the crowning achievement of Scott’s career, but he knows it won’t be easy. To take control of the story, he’ll have to upstage it. And to do that, he’ll have to engineer a hoax more ambitious and more elaborate than any publicist has ever attempted before.

Daniel Price is one of the best author's I've stumbled across in a long time! Not only are his characters charming and his plots intriguing but his writing is amazing! I've recommended both this book and his book Flight of the Silvers to numerous people already. My only disappointment is that he doesn't have a plethora of books written already! :P I can't wait to read whatever he writes next!! Slick was really entertaining because I haven't read a book like it before. It has a story line that you can easily follow but gives you a peek into a world that I didn't have any previous experience with---definitely read this book! You won't regret it!

This is a rather scary book. It is a kind of dark satire, the main character is truly slick and without conscience in who his clients are. It is all about how media manipulates our preferences and directs our attention to whatever news is a happening. If something is going on that embarrasses someone, they create news to the extent of sheer hoax just to divert attention. It is hard for me to like the main character, he is quite demonic; he shows heart to the female victims, but usually for ulterior purposes. The main plot going on is rather twisted, occasionally difficult to keep track of. I find it unbelievable that the woman being used would consent to any of it in the first place, and it seems odd that such an elaborate hoax would be set up just to divert attention from a rap artist with controversial lyrics and actions. The thing is that I can't help but wonder if media is being used in such a way for the benefit of those in power, but I'm not surprised. The media controls what we see and what we don't, and uses controversy to shape our inclinations to vote for someone or buy a product. In that way, this is a very educational book. He has a pretty developed character here, he should do a sequel. Even better, make this a TV series. Never believe what you see on the tube!

I don't review books here, but I felt compelled because it's just that good. I am completely bummed that it's over and that Price has only published one other book. Keep writing, man!

It's easy to read, engaging and thought provoking.

I enjoyed this book more than any other in recent memory. Well, this one and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Get both of them. Immediately. You're welcome.

I read this book because it was written by my sister's brother-in-law. It turned out to be a great wag the dog story - excellent sympathetic character and interesting and unusual situation. I really loved it. Both a page-turner and a book that makes you think (not groan at a contrived ending).

I stopped writing reviews awhile ago, but had to review this one...not only entertaining but enlightening as well. I thoroughly enjoyed it cover to cover.
Qusicam
An entertaining read that constantly has you wondering what will happen next. I liked the characters and enjoyed all the twists and turns the author threw out.
Tori Texer
interesting look into manipulation of the public by PR experts. and fun story.
I was apprehensive about this book but was pleasantly surprised. It is imaginative, engaging and a lot of fun twists and turns.
