You'll learn about Bill Clinton's laser-focused ability to listen to those he wants to seduce and how he's been teaching that craft to his wife, Hillary; how Ronald Reagan employed his basic optimism to win history to his side; the simple steps in human diplomacy that the first President Bush exploited to assemble a worldwide posse to attack Saddam Hussein and gain global approval in a way his son has failed to do; and how Nancy Pelosi became the first woman Speaker of the House by practicing the most fundamental of human qualities: hard-nosed loyalty. You'll also find out, for the first time, about Matthews' own wild ride through the turbulent, converging rapids of politics and journalism.
The big payoff in Life's a Campaign is what you'll learn about human nature, and how mastering and employing these truths separates the leaders from the followers.

It was interesting. I enjoyed the history and his inside knowledge of DC politics. His leap of transferring this experience into suggestions for how to be a better friend, etc. was a stretch.
Having Chris read the book added to the experience.
