Incredible inside view
The full access that Woodward was granted and his even handed reporting.
Direct conversations between the President and the Speaker of the House.
We get frustrated watching the creation of important legislation from the outside but our frustration is nothing like that of the people engaged in the dance.
Woodward still has his mojo.
Top 10 nonfiction
Blink or any Gladwell book. He has a unique and engaging way of presenting complex information in a way that makes it crystal clear.
Yes, all of his books are great, including this one.
It made me laugh.
When will his next book come out?!
Great history read
Learning that Grant had to send troops in to Alabama so that elected officials could take office in 1870s. Similar to the integration of the University of Alabama in the 1960s. Attitudes are slow to change and history repeats itself.
We know so much about the time leading up to the Civil War and the time of the Civil War but not as much about Reconstruction. This book put a personal face on that period and has given me greater respect for President Grant.
Best business book that I have read on audible
Calm logic; negotiation tactics that emphasis keeping the negotiations impersonal.
