The Gatekeepers by Chris Whipple
The Gatekeepers is a timely book, for sure. If you enjoy following politics, this is a must-have book. I've always been intrigued with the role of chiefs of staff simply because of their proximity to the most powerful man in the world (or what used to be the most powerful man in the world), their influence on him, and the day to day abuse they endure from all sides. Chris Whipple's research and writing are compelling and this book is captivating. I highly recommend it for policy wonks as well as those with general interest in politics - and everyone in between.
