957 Pages in 24 Hours?

My Life by Bill ClintonSlate questions the value and plausability of reviewing a mammoth book like Bill Clinton’s 957-page My Life in time for the 24-hour news cycle. Publisher Alfred A. Knopf denied reporters a copy of the book before its official release on June 22. Several papers ran reviews in the next 24-48 hours, though not every reviewer actually read the book. Seems more akin to elementary school book reports than professional book reviews.
