The Survivor: Bill Clinton in the White House by John F. Harris

John F. Harris was the White House correspondent for the Washington Post during six of the eight years of the Clinton presidency. In The Survivor, he looks back at the Clinton era, its controversies, scandals, partisan politics, and the dichotomous psychological makeup of Bill Clinton. Harris interviewed many of the people in Clinton's administrations, pointing out the personalities and interpersonal styles that served them best with Clinton. It was Clinton's ability to be a survivor, to bounce back from what look liked certain defeat and outlast his opponents, that perhaps most defined his presidency. The Survivor has received mostly positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "The debate about Bill Clinton, about his character and achievements and moral worth, will go on long after the subject himself has departed from the scene. Clinton 'was too vital and too vexing a character to be easily forgotten or dismissed,' Harris writes. This is a complex, interesting and subtle book about a complex, interesting and subtle man."
