I don't think it's the most well written book. Not sure if it's the reader or the way it was written, but I found the story line corny. BUT I do think the author has some points that are important to consider. I watched interviews with the author and he seems like a nice guy that just doesn't like the Clintons.
The small portion of the book that deals with the Clintons were good and interesting. While I appreciate the work Mr. Byrne's has given the country, the book is a bit misleading with the cover; I thought it would be all Hill and Bill, and not about his personal life and career - and yes that part was interesting as well, but would not have enough to make this Best Seller.
Not really, as only a small part of it is about Bill & Hill.
He was good.
I guess it's worth a read if you need to know everything about the Clintons or have an interest in the workings of the Secret Service behind the scenes; but I don't think I would have bought the book if I had know only a chapter or two were about the Clintons.
I recommend this book to anyone voting in the up coming election. I also recommend viewing the CSpan recording of the deposition. It's good to view all information favorable and unfavorable before voting. Act life your way of life depends on it because it does.
This book is so much more than what I had expected. Well written and presented. I have the utmost respect for Gary and his wonderful wife. Thank you for all you have done and all you still do.
This was an interesting book about the Clinton's from firsthand experience. You get a look at what is going on as if you were walking around the White House. If the Clinton's were as the book describes them, then it is no wonder Monica Lewinsky became involved. Monica was as snarky as the rest of them. I think the book went on a little too long because the last part was a story more about the author and my interest faded in the end. If you are curious about the Clinton's, this is not speculation but on site information.
I enjoyed hearing a day experience in the White House under different presidents and a few inside tales. I especially enjoyed hearing the viewpoint of an officer during his work and how that effects his life. Well read and well written.
Book dragged on after he left the White House, but it was riveting while he was working in The Clinton White House.
Not that iam aware
Juggling so many woman in the White House, Clinton was putting his life in danger. What would have happened if they discovered another lover and started a fight or attacked bill Clinton.
This is so much more than the recent media hype. It's about Clinton shenanigans (I am being kind with that word) and manipulation of the truth, but it's also about the kindness and class of the Bush Whitehouse, as well as about the career of a guy who has some interesting tales to tell.
Seems like Byrne has a penchant for speaking up when he sees a wrong or incompetency and had plenty of chances for this along the way in his long career with more than one branch of the federal government.
Anybody who works knows how the go-with-the-flow (suck-up) mediocre employee often succeeds while the lone person speaking up, however right he or she may be, often gets shafted. I think Byrne is well aware of the latter.
His experience in the airlift evacuation of refugees from Cypress (I hope I am remembering that country correctly) left me shaking my head in wonder.
I enjoyed the story but was terribly disturbed by the corrupt mess in Washington. It's a complete disgrace that leadership hold themselves above the law and endanger those they were elected to protect.
