I think the author (Taylor Branch) did a wonderful job capturing many behind the scenes aspects of the Clinton years in the White House, both personally and professionally. Also, I give credit to the President for having the guts to trust Mr. Branch with such intimate details of his private life.
Additionally, the author deserves many cudos for his strong journalistic compass, balanced treatment of the material, and laudable ethical example for others who have close access to Presidents...not to breach their sacred trusts by writing kiss and tell stories...attempting to get the last word on some issue or seeking their 15 minutes of fame and fortune!
This book is a brilliant and unbiased account of the Wall street Meltdown, and the seeds of destruction (planted many years previous) that provided the basis for the ensuing carnage. Rarely do I have the pleasure of listening to a book this insightful!! The research, writing, and unbiased reporting in this book should make the author a Pulitzer Prize candidate!!!
The most insightful vision of Philosophy and History I have ever encountered. Durant's work is absolute genius!!
