This story, written by a former White House insider, is about three women. The president, her chief of staff and a network news star. It's told in alternating chapters from alternating points of view. A catastrophic event on a trip to Afghanistan is the centerpiece of the book and changes everything. A pretty good story if you can get over the fact that the women are all attractive and always wearing designer clothes. At times, predictably, the men in the story just can't handle playing second fiddle to strong women dedicated to their careers. The men in the story are not fully formed as characters but this is a story about women. In this book the women kick butt and get the job done. Who needs men?

Highly recommend this amazing book. Ins and outs of those around the president - a female president at that - were truely fascinating. Loved the perspective of the "first husband".
