Latest Byrd Book To Debut

The latest book from U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd is slated to hit store shelves Tuesday.

In Letter to a New President: Commonsense Lessons for Our Next Leader, the longest-serving senator in U.S. history taps his experience as well as the U.S. Constitution, the Bible and other sources.

Clocking in at 208-pages, the book "
is a plea to the next occupant of the White House, and to all of us, to care more about the future of our country, world and future generations," The Charleston Gazette said in its review.

The review suggests Byrd remains dismissive of president Bush, describing him at one point as the
"most divisive, most nakedly partisan president in my lifetime." But he also has harsh words for Ronald Reagan, and opines that Bill Clinton "was also quite arrogant during his tenure in the White House," the review said.
