All too human : a political education

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, & for the next five years he was rarely more than a step away from the president & 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 & intimate portrait of how the nation's weighty business is conducted by people whose egos & idiosyncrasies are no sturdier than anyone else's. Including sharp portraits of the Clintons, Al Gore, Dick Morris, Colin Powell, & scores of others, as well as candid & revelatory accounts of the famous debacles & triumphs of an administration that constantly went over the top, All Too Human is, like its author, a brilliant combination of pragmatic insight & idealism. It is destined to be the most important & enduring book to come out of the Clinton administration.

  • "When Stephanopolous first met Bill Clinton, Stephanopoulos was 30, a Rhodes scholar eager to work in politics. As he and Clinton talked, Stephanopoulos was inspired. This man could make the country better, and Stephanopoulos would help him. For five years Stephanopoulos was never far from the President. His 17-hour days were filled with everything from media damage control to the most critical policy issues. It was a pace few can sustain for long. Finally, he was forced to recognize the exhaustion, stress, and his growing uneasiness with Clinton's flaws. All Too Human captures the great political moments and also the human frailty of the decision-makers."
  • "The former senior advisor to President Clinton during his first term, now an political commentator for ABCTV, presents an irreverent, intimate portrait of the major figures of the Clinton White House and its achievements and debacles."

  • "For one year of campaigning and four years in the White House, George Stephanopoulos was rarely more than a few steps from Bill Clinton. As the President's senior adviser, he saw it all -- the arguments, the scheming, the protracted decisions, and the last minute flip-flops that somehow produced real accomplishments but also set in motion an almost tragic series of events. With the natural ease of a storyteller and a sensitive eye for detail, Stephanopoulos tells an extraordinarily gripping story of human foibles and frailty in high places."
