This book should not be dismissed as a left leaning political rant. Clarke is critical of the current administration, but that is not the theme. You can not find a more informative look at the inner workings of the White House. The play by play of the entire day of 9/11, the crisis room in full operation, and a visit to the presidential vault in the West Wing, are all real eye openers. The White House in Crisis Mode is very impressive and is essentially universal for all recent administrations. Do not pass on this because you think it is another Bush Bash - its real value is how well our government works regardless of the administration. Clarke has acclaims from the last 5 changes in the Oval Office.
