Summary
"This revealing book examines the relationships between US presidents and their closest advisers from a psychological, personal, and professional point of view. The author, a Capitol Hill veteran, shows why such relationships are necessary, how presidents have employed them, how they have evolved over successive administrations, and why some believe they are not in the best interests of the nation. . . . Whether their connection with presidents was close or strained, these 'partners to power' had an impact on some of history's most important moments and decisions."--Jacket flap
