For four years in the White House and one year of campaigning before that, he was rarely more than a few steps behind Bill Clinton. As the president's senior adviser, George Stephanopoulos saw it all: the endless arguments, the back-hall scheming, the protracted decisions, and the last minute flip-flops that somehow produced real accomplishments but also set in motion an almost tragic series of events that placed the fate of the president in the hands of the Senate. Now, with the natural ease of a born storyteller and the sensitive eye for detail of a novelist, Stephanopoulos tells an extraordinarily gripping story of human foible and frailty in high places that is destined to be one of the great political memoirs of our age. Stephanopoulos also tells, in his own voice, his story, of how his drives, vanities, and insecurities, along with everyone else's peppered the playing field of the biggest game in town.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daryl | 2/16/2014

    " I learned that Bill Clinton (known as Bill before elected) wanted to be called Mr. President by his friends afterward. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 2/13/2014

    " Really interesting look at Bill Clinton from an "insider" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/10/2014

    " Behind the scenes look at the Clintons and their early years in the White House as told by a close aide to the President, George Stephanopolous. It is interesting to understand that his feelings move from admiration to disgust at Clinton's pecadillos. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leigh M | 2/4/2014

    " I think this is the book that really got me "into" politics. Interesting perspective on the first Clinton administration "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 1/12/2014

    " Insider account of Clinton #1's admin. Really interesting and extremely engaging despite already knowing how the story ends...the little stuff in between & the background are great! Tho Stephanopoulis is a little manic in the swing from self aggrandizement to self deprecation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dayla | 1/7/2014

    " If George S would have waited to write this biography/autobiography about his years in the White House, I think he would have had a different ending. George S will still in one of the stages before "acceptance." I got a lot of anger from him in this book. Anger always subsides, and writing a book while not quite at the "acceptance" level of understanding another him, seemed unwise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 1/4/2014

    " Interesting insiders view into the Clinton administration "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tarin Allen | 12/29/2013

    " Interesting book....very easy read. Not necessarily mindblowing stuff but it kept my attention. I'm reading The Clinton Wars now.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny D. | 12/24/2013

    " This brought back a wave of memories of the '92 Clinton presidential campaign. I identified pretty strongly with George in his disappointment in a candidate he had worked so hard for, and yet still finding himself liking the man immensely. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don Murphy | 12/3/2013

    " A little too wordy in my opinion. But, Stephaonopolous does seem to give a fairly nonbiased view of himself while dealing with Pres. Clinton. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keke | 11/23/2013

    " I liked it. I'm not that into politics and don't generally read this sort of thing but I found it interesting. It is all about George. Maybe I just think he is cute. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanie | 11/21/2013

    " I found this a fascinating account and he seemed to be so honest about his ambition and how it led them into making good decisions and bad. His honesty about himself seemed remarkable and made the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 11/4/2013

    " An honest look at the Clinton years "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire Lyman | 10/24/2013

    " Loved this. Insightful, honest, self aware. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cheryl Schibley | 2/14/2013

    " Very disappointing for such an appealing personality. Bland Bland Blah "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane Stern | 11/24/2012

    " More about Stephanopoulos than about Clinton. Too much self=analysis along with self-serving gossip. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arnab Karmakar | 11/3/2012

    " Such an amazing book, that I was compelled to read it multiple times, eventually adding it to my personal library (though it does slightly hint at cynical reasons for becoming a liberal). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick | 10/30/2012

    " Learned more by what he took for granted than anything else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 7/11/2012

    " A great political autobiography. It stands up remarkably well over the years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Coscia | 6/8/2012

    " Very informative book. Stephanopoulos earned my respect with his candid account of the Clinton administration. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 J.C. | 3/7/2012

    " don't ask me why I read it, and please, please don't ask me why I finished it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tvshi | 12/8/2011

    " I couldn't believe how I couldn't put this book down. I knew, as a Clinton lover, that I'd love the behing-the-scenes details. And George is hot. But his self assessments make this book unforgettable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kerry | 9/15/2011

    " i really did love this book, but i like to follow politics. An honest detailed look inside the White House during the first Clinton term. I thought he did a good job of keeping it nonpartisan. It's long but good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mirëdon Fusha | 7/6/2011

    " Bill Clinton's adviser making one think, why Bill Clinton was a President after all?! That's "how smart and competent" this guy really is!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 katie | 7/4/2011

    " A well written insiders view of Clinton's presidency. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tiffany | 4/26/2011

    " Going into reading this memoir, I am a huge fan of Stephanopoulos. The writing is great and he presents his honest opinion of all that is Clinton. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 3/26/2011

    " Although a Clinton-skeptic, this is one of the most compelling political biopics out there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 3/15/2011

    " Trying out the GoodReads FB app - works a lot better, and cleaner interface. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed | 11/15/2010

    " Although a Clinton-skeptic, this is one of the most compelling political biopics out there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dev | 11/12/2010

    " Certainly illuminating and seemingly quite fair. Stephanopoulos reveals many interesting tidbits of his and the Clinton's time in the White House.(2.7) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joel | 9/12/2010

    " Suggested for someone who is interested by the inner workings of the political machine. Good read and George is a guy who is easy to pull for. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luckngrace | 8/18/2010

    " I didn't find it very informative for an insiders book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 7/12/2010

    " Interesting look into the Clinton administration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 4/18/2010

    " Interesting. He is honest about the fact that it is really almost all about power and his career. It does sound, though, like he almost believes in the vast right wing conspiracy. I don't think he ever has a nice word to say about Republicans. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mrs. Revier | 3/11/2010

    " a well-done, quick read. i don't know what made me purchase this, but i REALLY liked it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 2/15/2010

    " Painted a realisitic view of Pres. Clinton and what kind of a guy he really was. He talked extensively on how charged the air was in Washington during this time. Great book for anyone wanting a behind the scenes look at the Clinton White House. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 2/2/2010

    " Very informative book. Stephanopoulos earned my respect with his candid account of the Clinton administration. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanie | 1/1/2010

    " I found this a fascinating account and he seemed to be so honest about his ambition and how it led them into making good decisions and bad. His honesty about himself seemed remarkable and made the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerald | 12/27/2009

    " I was mesmerized by the insight into the Clinton White House and the delivery of the author. Although it was eight years ago when I listened to this book I remember one comment quite clearly, "Until we came here (Washington D.C.) we all thought that we were pretty good people." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 8/21/2009

    " made me love politics in a more grounded way. and develop an insane crush. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 6/1/2009

    " Fast paced and well writen. A must read for any political junkie. "
