    Refreshing and Inspiring

    Fabulous!! A truly remarkable woman who sets the highest standard for all of us to follow. I read the book in 1 day; I couldn't put it down. I laughed; I cried; and I came away inspired to do better in my own life. She validated my opinion of President George W. Bush as a warm, caring, intelligent man who truly has the best interests of 'we the people' in his heart and the tremendous sacrifices that he makes to keep America safe and strong. This is the definitive book on what it is to be the President of the United States and what life is like in the most powerful job in the world.

    WHAT A REFRESHING STORY

    What a refreshing story about politics inside. Karen Hughes is to be commended for seperating family from politics. It is nice to know that there are some 'humans' in the whitehouse once again. She gave some insights to the whitehouse that were not expected , but very refreshing. For once a political book that wasn't so depressing. Thank you Karen.

    Warm and Intelligent

    This book was written so that i felt I was sitting and talking to Ms. Hughes. She gives a wonderful glimpse of what it is like to work in politics, state and national. I was never bored, even though I rarely read and enjoy non-fiction. I came away from this book with renewed respect for President Bush and admiration for Ms. Hughes and the tough decision she made.

    EXCELLENT! A MUST READ!!

    This book is excellent! Very smooth reading! You feel like your on the campaign plane and going through the daily grind with Bush and Hughes. Takes you inside the White House and into some of the personalities the media doesn't portray of senior staff. GET IT & READ IT!

    Worth the read!!

    Karen Hughes rights an insightful account of her close interactions with President Bush. It is obvious Bush has a lot of faith in her advice, and after reading her book I can see why. Just another very intelligent person working by his side.
