Staff Pick

What do White House Chiefs of Staff actually do? How important are they really? What makes a good Chief of Staff? Chris Whipple's highly informed and deeply engrossing book answers these questions and many more. Beginning with Richard Nixon's first Chief of Staff, H. R. Haldeman, Whipple chronicles the tenures of every White House Chief up until John Kelly. His detailed account reveals the incredibly significant roles that the Chiefs have played in influencing events as major as Watergate, the Iran-Contra scandal, the Lewinsky affair, the invasion of Iraq, and the DACA rollout.
