Format: Paperback
When I bought this book by the Press Secretary of the Carter Administration two things became glaring apparent to me. The first is that I am a political junkie and the second was that regardless of how outdated a book, I will read about any memoir of an inside guy. The book is a bit different from your normal political memoir in that the author focuses exclusively on how the press treated the Carter Presidency and staff. The author does not give you a historical overview of the administration and how he fit in. I must say that this was an interesting approach. Sure the dust jacket said this was the focus of the book, but almost anyone writing a book about their years in the White House always falls in to describing the great things he or she did regardless of the original focus of the book. The author also did something so few politicians ever do that it is memorable even if it is not that impressive in and off itself, the author detailed out the mistakes he made and took full responsibility for them.

I must say this author took no prisoners when talking about some of the rather dubious and headline grabbing reporting that took place during his time in the White House. If he had any grudges or complaints about the press that he kept to himself during his years in the administration, they are laid bare in this book. As I read it I almost would cringe at some of the comments, how he ever thought he would be part of the press community after this book came out is beyond me. I have to give him credit, he did not take personal shots, he just went after them as professionals and in doing so he detailed out some instances that had to prove rather harmful to the reporters reputations. It made for some very entertaining and interesting reading.

Format: Hardcover
After having studied The Carter Presidency extensively to find out if he really was the worst President in US History (now the 2nd worst apparently behind the current President), this book made me realize that he really got horrible treatment from the Press with unsubstantiated charges motivated by a regional prejudice (since he is a Southerner) and also being the 'outsider' who refused, for the most part, to play Washington's game.
