"Al Franken, Giant of The Senate", by Al Franken. ****

  • Audiobook 
  • US author
  • Non-fiction,  autobiographical 
  • Originally published 2017
  • Review:  I have read a couple of Al Franken's books and found them slightly extreme for my taste in reading.  This book, which I listened to as the author read it, was a much better experience.  It covers Franken's SNL years and his burgeoning interest in politics, and brings the reader to present day.  The focus is on the nuts and bolts of running for office, and being in office.   Franken's wit is definitely present and thoroughly enjoyable, without the over the top feeling. Humor enhances his point, rather than being the point.  I was extremely impressed!
