Paperback Cover


"From one of our closest students of the Presidency, John Dickerson's thoughtful, learned, original, shrewd, comprehensive, up-to-the-minute book, full of wisdom and personal observations, could not be more needed than at this moment in American history."

—Michael Beschloss, bestselling author of Presidential Courage: Brave Leaders and How They Changed America 1789-1989

“Superb . . . a captivating read . . . I found myself sometimes nodding in agreement so vigorously that I worried about hurting my neck. . . . A wonderful contribution to understanding what is, for sure, the hardest job in the world.”

—Robert Gates, former United States Secretary of Defense
