Overview

This is a look at the real Newt Gingrich as seen by a former colleague, close friend, and member of his staff. It is an inside view of Gingrich during his climb to power from his early training to his years as Speaker and leader of the Republican Party.

Steely reveals Gingrich's personal and political problems as well as his triumphs, His divorce and ethics problems are discussed, as well as his early campaign losses and the close call in 1990. Also, the "necessary revolution" leading to his rise in the party and the House, the development of "New Inc." as well as his role in national elections and the reforms he brought to House GOP organization, the Conservative Opportunity Society, the whip's office, to the Speaker's office, and the House itself, and finally resignation.

Steely reveals a different Gingrich than the one presented by the media. We see a brilliant serf-assured leader who is able to compartmentalize, redefine crisis, and see defeat as opportunity.
