Summary

"In The Prince of Tennessee, David Maraniss and Ellen Nakashima explore in detail the forces that have shaped Al Gore's life, and the ways that his past offers clues to what kind of president he would be. The Gore who comes to life in these pages is an intelligent and competent man, struggling with self-doubt and insecurity that explain his bureaucratic obsession with fact and his tendency to exaggerate his accomplishments."--BOOK JACKET.
