is a new-generation political memoir, written from the refreshing perspective of one who got his hands on the levers of awesome power at an early age.
At thirty, the author was at Bill Clinton’s side during the presidential campaign of 1992, & for the next five years he was rarely more than a step away from the president & his other advisers at every important moment of the first term. What Liar’s Poker did to Wall Street, this book will do to politics. It is an irreverent & intimate portrait of how the nation’s weighty business is conducted by people whose egos & idiosyncrasies are no sturdier than anyone else’s.
Including sharp portraits of the Clintons, Al Gore, Dick Morris, Colin Powell, & scores of others, as well as candid & revelatory accounts of the famous debacles & triumphs of an administration that constantly went over the top, All Too Human is, like its author, a brilliant combination of pragmatic insight & idealism. It is destined to be the most important & enduring book to come out of the Clinton administration.
