4.0 out of 5 stars A great book for the politically minded, September 19, 2001
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The White House Staff: Inside the West Wing and Beyond (Hardcover)
I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants to find out what its really like to serve as a member of the White House staff as opposed to what may be portrayed on television. This book reveals that most staffers are hardly the fast-quipping, terminally righteous characters from The West Wing but are instead human beings attempting, like all of us, to do the best job possible and all the more admirable for it.
Anyway, this is one of the most detailed examinations of the Presidential staff that I've ever read. Each chapter is dedicated to a different part of the White House staff and basically gives a detailed job description which makes clear their sometimes murky duties. Even such often-ignored folks like the White House kitchen staff get notice of their own. Overall, one comes away with a real appreciation for the hundreds of individuals who contribute to keeping this country moving forward. Also filled with anecdotes (many of which I hadn't come across before), this book should definitely be of interest to anyone who follows politics.
