Publisher's Summary

He swore to take a bullet for the President and left it all behind to take a bullet for the American people. Why would a successful, twelve-year Secret Service agent resign his position in the prime of his career to run for political office against all the odds?
New York Times bestseller, Life Inside the Bubble is an intimate look at life inside the presidential "bubble," a haze of staffers, consultants, cronies, acolytes, bureaucrats and lobbyists that creates the "alternate reality" in which monumental policy decisions are made. And it is the story of a dedicated Secret Service professional who, after years inside the "bubble," walked away in favor of sounding a clarion call to the American people in defense of sane government and the U.S. Constitution.
Finally, why the Fast & Furious scandal, the bombings in Boston and the terrorist attacks in Benghazi are harbingers of what's to come without a bold change in direction.
Take the journey with Dan Bongino from the tough streets of New York City where he was raised, and later patrolled as a member of the NYPD, to the White House as a member of the elite Presidential Protective Division, through his ultimate decision to resign from the Secret Service - during the Obama Administration - in the prime of his career to run for the United States Senate against the feared Maryland Democratic machine. Follow his experiences inside the Washington, D.C., matrix and discover why a government filled with some incredibly dedicated people nevertheless continues to make such frequent and tragic mistakes.

Great book! Lots of details on where our government can improve.

I have been listening to Dan's podcast for about 9 months now, and wanted to know more about the person behind the podcast. My husband got me an Audible subscription for Christmas, and I eagerly downloaded this book first. The book gives a good background on Dan's life beginning in early childhood. Fascinating behind the scene details of his time as a Secret Service Agent, as well as some brief details about running for Congress (his first run). I like that he broke down many of the issues plaguing our national security and offered workable solutions. The narrator was horribly boring, but I still think the book deserves 5 stars based on content. Looking forward to listening to Dan's 2nd book!

Don't bother

This is my first review of any books that I have purchased but I had to make a review of this book.
The writer gave very little info entering the secret service and when he did he just said they don't like whiners or complainers. I was surprised that he even wrote a book saying he was in the secret service since he only did 12 years.
I swear the only reason he named it secret service is that readers would think this was an interesting book. He only wanted to name it that so people would read about himself running for I believe senator.
Don't waste your money on this.
