Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

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.
