Publisher Comments:

All Too Human is a new-generation political memoir, written from the refreshing perspective of one who got his hands on the levers of awesome power at an early age. At thirty, the author was at Bill Clinton's side during the presidential campaign of 1992, and for the next five years he was rarely more than a step away from the president and his other advisers at every important moment of the first term. What Liar's Poker did to Wall Street, this book will do to politics. It is an irreverent and intimate portrait of how the nation's weighty business is conducted by people whose egos and idiosyncrasies are no sturdier than anyone else's. Including sharp portraits of the Clintons, Al Gore, Dick Morris, Colin Powell, and scores of others, as well as candid and revelatory accounts of the famous debacles and triumphs of an administration that constantly went over the top, All Too Human is, like its author, a brilliant combination of pragmatic insight and idealism. It is destined to be the most important and enduring book to come out of the Clinton administration.

Synopsis:

A personal and candid memoir by the former senior counselor to the president about life in the White House during Clinton's first term. A brilliant combination of pragmatic insight and idealism, "All Too Human" will do to politics what "Liar's Poker" did to Wall Street. of photos.

This book is truly an education. A glimpse into the elite group of White House advisors and staff. Written beautifully, I read half the book in one sitting, because it was so captivating and it gives the public a glimpse into one of the most popular and destructive presidents we have ever had. I encourage everyone to read this book, and also to watch George's interview on the Charlie Rose show on YOUTUBE.
