Publisher's Summary

Have you ever wondered how George W. Bush got to be President? Writer, political strategist, and Bush campaign worker Stuart Stevens takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of the Bush presidential campaign. He shows us the hidden moments in the small towns of Texas which added up to success for the former Major League Baseball owner: the humble Bush practicing his speeches in a small Methodist church in Crawford, Texas; the blue-jeaned Bush, hoping for a chance to "bond" with his strategists; the innocent Bush, convinced he would win despite overwhelming odds and an opponent who was counting on them. With humor, Stevens relays hair-raising tales of the campaign trail.

Critic Reviews

"Entertaining....Stevens provides insight into the inner workings of the Bush campaign, and gives a marvelous sense of what it's like at the top level of the hectic fight for the White House." (Publishers Weekly)
"The insider's view...Funny and useful for its depiction of the bloody-knuckle tactics needed to win a national election." (The Hartford Courant)
