What People are Saying About This

New York Times bestselling author of The Residence and First Women - Kate Andersen Brower

"INSIDE CAMP DAVID gives a first-hand account of the president's most private retreat from an author who ran it. Camp David is part sanctuary, part office, and part vacation destination. Giorgione captures life at the exclusive retreat and offers a glimpse into the lives of presidents and their families when they're seeking a respite from the spotlight."
