Young portrays Edwards as a self-obsessed, all-around creep in a copy of the book obtained by the Daily News.
Even as he cheated on his wife Elizabeth with campaign videographer Rielle Hunter, Young says, Edwards refused to consider a divorce - partly because he still loved his wife, and partly because voters did, too.
Young says he went along with the paternity scheme out of a cultish loyalty to the candidate - and because he believed Edwards would save his career even as Elizabeth Edwards trashed him. In short, he writes, "I was f---ed."
In 2006, with his wife away, Edwards brought Hunter to the couple's home, Young writes. There, Edwards told her they'd one day marry on a Manhattan rooftop and form a new family.
