For many years I have read, enjoyed, and admired Peggy Noonan's column in The Wall Street Journal. Unfortunately, she is better at writing short pieces than long ones, and I found this book to be a major disappointment. In the introduction, she describes her style as "idiosyncratic", and although her style is charming in a newspaper column, it simply grates in a book. She writes in what appears as a stream of consciousness, but her observations and insights are bland and boring, despite her efforts to dress things up with cute prose. I started skimming at page 48, but eventually gave up. Everything she has to say about working in the White House could have been said in a long magazine article or column -- it did not merit 346 pages!
Waiting for this book since october, almost december and no luck yet. Still first in line. Seems like a great read!
