Summary:

Scott McClellan belonged to Bush's select inner circle of trusted advisers during one of the most challenging and contentious periods of recent history. Over a period of more than seven years, he witnessed day-to-day exactly how the Presidency veered off course: not only by its decision to topple Saddam Hussein, but by an embrace of confrontational politics in the face of an increasingly partisan Washington and hostile media.

In this refreshingly clear-eyed book, McClellan provides unique perspective on what happened and why it happened the way it did, including the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina, and two hotly-contested presidential campaigns. He gives readers a candid look into who George W. Bush is and what he believes, and explores the lessons this Presidency offers the American people as we prepare to elect a new leader.
