Read full description of the books:



I’m only giving this book 4 stars because I find the subject – which is mostly politics - kind of boring. But that does not mean it was not well written. In fact, given the topic, I found it highly entertaining.

The author, Meg Greenfield, was for many years editorial page editor of the Washington Post, and before that she was a reporter in Washington for almost as many more. So she knew the movers and shakers in Washington as probably few other people knew them. In this book, she analyses what made them tick and comments on the ongoing changes (not necessarily for the better) in the Washington community. She also has some pithy comments on the relationship between reporters and the people they cover. One observation she makes here is that, while there is a lot of ethical angst over whether some reporters are too close to the people they report on, therefore likely to slant their stories more favorably to their friends, she sees the more worrisome problem as being that other reporters harbor an “intractable antipathy” to some people and causes.

I particularly liked her analogy of the Washington political hierarchy to high school in several aspects.

She also shares several personal anecdotes from her years in Washington meeting with the great and not-so-great.
