Written in Fennos homespun story-telling style, this book argues that authenticity - knowing what a representative is like in his/her district and looking beyond mere roll call voting - contributes significantly to understanding the full body of work done by our members of Congress.

It further posits, by recounting Fennos actual lifes work, that the best way to gain a sense of authenticity is to do what Fenno is most famous for - i.e., making multiple trips and spending a great deal of time observing representatives at home, with their constituents, in their districts. The book is an engaging, quietly provocative, and unique title that offers an alternative to what some consider the increasingly specialized and technical nature of political science
