Publisher's Description

Bob Woodward once again pulls back the curtain on Washington to reveal the inner workings of a government at war.  In  his  fourth  book  on  President  George  W.  Bush,  Bob Woodward  takes  readers  deep  inside  the  tensions,  secret debates, unofficial backchannels, distrust, and determina- tion within the White House, the Pentagon, the State Department, the intelligence agencies, and the U.S. military headquarters in Iraq. This is the inside story of how Bush governed.

Editorial Reviews

"[B]rilliantly reported..." -- Timothy Rutten, Los Angeles Times
"A better first draft of history might be difficult to find." -- Gilbert Cruz, Time
"More than mere anecdotal detail, this is the stuff of history... The fine detail is wonderfully illuminating, and cumulatively these books may be the best record we will ever get of the events they cover... They stand as the fullest story yet of the Bush presidency and of the war that is likely to be its most important legacy." -- Jill Abramson, The New York Times Book Review
"...recalls David Halberstam's iconic The Best and the Brightest...The War Within's controversial revelations are contentions and numerous...But, mainly, it is a study of what happens when men and women, charged with leading the country in wartime or with counseling those who lead, do not tell each other what they really think." -- Josiah Bunting, III, The Washington Post
"An extraordinary window into policy making." -- The Kansas City Star
"The In Cold Blood of national security journalism." -- The Nation
"If you want to know about the Iraq War, Bob Woodward is the guy." -- Bill O'Reilly
"Bob Woodward is the latest to remind us that it is presidents, not their understudies, who shape the destiny of nations." -- Fouad Ajami, The Wall Street Journal
