The Price of Loyalty: George W. Bush, the White House, and the Education of Paul O'Neill by Ron Suskind
When Paul O'Neill became Secretary of the Treasury, it was his fourth stint in a Republican administration and followed his successful revival of Alcoa as its CEO. Fired by George W. Bush two years later, O'Neill has now written The Price of Loyalty about those years inside the Bush administration. In it, he claims that Bush was a disengaged president while policy was driven by Dick Cheney and Karl Rove, and that the plans to invade Iraq were being made from the beginning of the administration. Disagreeing with the tax cut and corporate governance policies eventually cost O'Neil his job. Whether you find this book a damning insider's account of government run amok or sour grapes from someone who wasn't a team player might depend on your politics. The San Antonio Express-News says of The Price of Loyalty, "But underneath all that stands a well-written, important book."
