We were so fortunate to have a dedicated, brilliant, public servant for 8 years and for him to lay bare his thought processes is such a gift. I have read his other books and many books from his former staffers so already knew quite a bit of this. He is a great writer, keeps the narrative moving and I wonder how a person can juggle so many things at once, get by on so little sleep and keep himself in good shape. I am glad I read this because while I have been wondering how trump could have been elected after obama this book does show warning signs of the intractability of the Republican leaders, unwillingness to work across the wider and wider divide in Congress, etc. The derision and lack of respect that was shown to him was a harbinger of racism coming out into the daylight in trumps term.
