Here is the ultimate insider's account from the highest and most sensitive levels of the Clinton administration, revealing how the irresponsible use of power can lead to a terrible price paid by all Americans. Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Robert "Buzz" Patterson was one of the military aides to commander-in-chief William Jefferson Clinton. What Patterson saw shocked him - and finally led him to write this stunning book.

Would you consider the audio edition of Dereliction of Duty to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily a better version, I have read both, but certainly an entertaining one.

What other book might you compare Dereliction of Duty to and why?

A book unlike any other. A must read before you vote again.

What about J. C. Hayes’s performance did you like?

Steady with just enough emotional edge.

If you could give Dereliction of Duty a new subtitle, what would it be?

A must before you vote! .

Any additional comments?

People were wrapped up in the Lewinsky affair but there was so much more to the appalling attitudes and policies of the Clinton era. The lack of respect for the military, for the office of the President, for people of all races, and the taxpayer in general. According to this Hillary would be even worse
