2020: Book #2
I’d call this a triumph.
Literally, a masterpiece.
You go deep behind the curtain and hear the stories of the employees….the employees of the White House.
Their dedication, faithfulness and discretion is simply a marvel.
These are stories about JFK, LBJ, Nixon, the Bushes, the Clintons and the Obamas.
I had no idea President Clinton had stitches in his head while serving as president. The staff claim they were a result of Hillary beating him with a hardcover book.
Michelle Obama loved the staff but protected the family’s private time.
The staff turned their heads when JFK snuck a girlfriend in through the back door of the White House.
This book is fascinating.
The staff of the White House are the definition of class and integrity.
Great stories that help you see leaders at their worst and their best.
Leaders could learn much from this book, for you’ll see leaders through the eyes of butlers, maids and doormen.
The book is The Residence: Inside the Private World of The White House, by Kate Anderson Brower and it’s a true 5 out of 5 stars.
That’s book #2 for 2020.
50 more books to go to hit 52 for the year.
Remember, all leaders are readers.
If you want to be a better leader…be a reader.
