    Description

    For four years in the White House and one year of campaigning before that, he was rarely more than a few steps behind Bill Clinton. As the president's senior adviser, George Stephanopoulos saw it all: the endless arguments, the back-hall scheming, the protracted decisions, and the last minute flip-flops that somehow produced real accomplishments but also set in motion an almost tragic series of events that placed the fate of the president in the hands of the Senate. Now, with the natural ease of a born storyteller and the sensitive eye for detail of a novelist, Stephanopoulos tells an extraordinarily gripping story of human foible and frailty in high places that is destined to be one of the great political memoirs of our age. Stephanopoulos also tells, in his own voice, his story, of how his drives, vanities, and insecurities, along with everyone else's peppered the playing field of the biggest game in town.

    Commentaires

    "Stephanopoulos is a unique witness, and his gossipy, detailed recollections give a disturbing picture not only of Bill Clinton but of the modern White House - a place of mood swings, improvisation, office intrigue, and chaos." (Jeffrey Frank, The New Yorker)

    Abridged!

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I didn't realize this was an abridged version. Although it was good to hear the writer, this was only 4 chapters and no notice that this was abridged. Huge disappointment and rather a rip-off.

    An Excellent Perspective

    Taken from Stephanopoulos' perspective this is an excellent listen. I originally purchased this on cassette when it first came out and listened to it several times. While some of the issues that where important to us at that time seem trivial in the post 9/11 world, the insight brought to these events from his position in the Clinton group is extremely interesting. The fact that George is reading it makes it even better. There are a lot of positions expressed about the many personalities involved as well as the good things accomplished, the mistakes, and the opportunities squandered.

    My fault

    I really did like the story, but I didn't have time to finish the paper version on my own. If it wasn't abridged, this audio would've been the answer to my prayers.

    Still delusional about the Clintons

    Stephanopoulus definitely expresses anger at Clinton over the Lewensky scandal and some of his other lies to the country, but it is still a sweetheart account when an insider like him fails to mention the big fat lie that Bill Clinton told long-time Clinton insider Sidney Blumenthal.

    Recall that Blumenthal swore under oath that Clinton claimed that Monica had threatened to lie about Bill if he wouldn't wouldn't sleep with her, not only that she made the whole thing up but that she actually extorted and slandered the president of the United States. Given that Blumenthal had left the NY Times to work for Clinton, the president fully expected this lie to end up in print.

    Blumenthal repeated the accusation in his book "the Clinton Wars," a work by an even more delusional liberal. The startling fact that Blumenthal has continued to work for the Clintons and to be involved in their scandals shows that it is true. The Clintons have no trouble with slandering Bill's girlfriends or anyone else, yet Stephanopoulus gives Clinton a pass on the most blatant example of this.

    ABRIDGED

    It is my own fault. I didn't check if this was an unabridged copy. It is not!

    Beware this audio book is ABRI

    Title really apropo

    Really liked the story & George reading it made it even more enjoyable. Politics is really rough business. Why anyone chooses to enter into it I'll never understand.

    30 yes old and in the White House

    Close enough to the pinnacle to see the beauty and the flaws. An insider's perspective and then one from a distance. Well writ. Well read. Enjoyed.

    Excellent

    Much to respect about the author and this work. Two fascinating stories in one. The first 6 years of Bill Clinton's presidency and George's quite instructive and candid view of his own experiences and growth.

    West wing TV show brought me here!

    This account of the White House provided more gravity to the actual show. George's experience is very interesting.
