A time for truth

This is the thirteenth book I read in preparation for the 2016 Presidential Elections.

The first half of the book is a nice autobiography. Mr Cruz is a law-geek, and behaves quite similarly to the tech-geeks that I'm well familiar with. He clearly thinks high of himself -- and he truly seems a smart person -- but also knows that pride can be his weakness and he is nicely self-deprecating at times.

In the last 100 pages, when he is a Senator, the book changes its tone and it became harder to sympathize with Mr. Cruz -- his ideas and comments are just too different and in my opinion completely wrong.

The Benghazi/IRS nonsense overshadows his arguments when he points out legitimately dubious elements of the Obama administration's actions such as the wiretapping of journalists
