Love the book and like you thought President Bush was a great leader with many obstacles in his way. Thanks for the insight into his Presidency. The way you came to be the press secretary to his administration is something that all who aspire to success should follow. Love the Five.
True to Dana's beliefs and personality
This book is so enlightening about what Washington, DC is about. It is told by Dana in a fun,but educational way. Her devotion to George W. Bush is truly special. I know most people would enjoy having a boss that treated them like he did Dana. The romance about Peter and her dogs is very endearing. She is the best part of The Five. Fantastic book.
And the good News Is...
