A blistering book....Books and various publications...routinely purport to take readers 'inside' powerful institutions. Woodward delivers on the promise in a way that other journalists almost never do....The turmoil at the White House, together with Clinton's penchant for brinksmanship, make the tale exciting.

The Washington Post's famed sleuth offers a tantalizingly voyeuristic glimpse inside the Clinton White House....Delightfully new details, all.

New York Times Book Review

Philadelphia Inquirer

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Journalist Woodward's fast-paced behind-the-scenes look at the Clinton administration was a 13-week PW bestseller. (Apr.)
Library Journal
Watergate sleuth Woodward (All the President's Men, 1974) turns his attention to the Clinton administration and unveils a complicated, temperamental, and visionary leader. Beginning with Clinton's entry into the presidential race and continuing through his first year in office, Woodward records the pulse of a leader deeply committed to making profound changes. In his introduction, Woodward states his intent to fill the void between journalism and history by providing accurate, in-depth narratives based upon exhaustive research and documentation. The listener is given details without a critique of the President's actions. Narrator Kevin Spacey is simply excellent at conveying the urgency, idealism, and confusion evident during Clinton's early months. All libraries should purchase.-Ray Vignovich, West Des Moines P.L., Ia.
