This was an interesting read, but my overall impression is that it is "gossip in high places." So Ford did not like Reagan and was defensive of Chaney. That is understandable. Reagan beat him for a nomination and was not supportive when Ford ran for president. Chaney was his chief of staff and even though Chaney moved significantly to the right later and could care less about public opinion, Ford still saw him as a friend. Overall I found the book to reveal that those in high places are not different from the rest of us. They, too, are motivated and governed by petty concerns between people. I want to believe that those who lead us are different from us. This book disappoints that belief.

I was a bit of a letdown. I found some of the details of President Ford interesting. I did not think that it was quite enough. I was left wanting more information.

A greta book. This a look behind at the man, that was Jerry Ford. All kids of behind the scens detail from a man who became his friend. It is not a biography, but it is an intimate look at Ford.
