Pennsylvania Avenue: Profiles in Backroom Power Pennsylvania Avenue: Profiles in Backroom Power

by John Harwood and Gerald Seib

Book Reviews

"Essential reading for anyone interested in the inside workings of American politics."
---Brian Williams, anchor, NBC Nightly News

"The best look yet at what's going on behind closed doors in the Bush II White House."
--Benjamin C. Bradlee, vice president and former executive editor, The Washington Post

"This is the real inside story on the real insiders. John Harwood and Gerald F. Seib have dug out a series of fast-moving profiles of the nation's most influential power brokers. Pennsylvania Avenue is ideal for aficionados of power -- a handbook for people who do business in Washington and a must-read for anyone who follows politics and wants to know who really moves power in Washington and how they do it."
--Hendrick Smith, author of The Power Game: How Washington Works

"The White House and the Capitol are the two most impressive buildings along the nation's most important avenue. But John Harwood and Gerald Seib reveal where the power really lies -- in the faceless offices and tony restaurants where deals are made and alliances are struck. Finally, the dirty truth: Partisanship can be useful, common ground elusive, and a lot of people you've never heard of benefit from the stalemate."
--Gwen Ifill, host of PBS's Washington Week

"Among their peers, John Harwood and Gerald Seib are respected as the gold standard of deep and honest reporting. Some journalists pretend they know what is going on; Harwood and Seib really do, as they prove once again in this evocative and insightful book."
--David Maraniss, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of First in His Class: A Biography of Bill Clinton
