Lecture and book signing with President
H.W. Bush’s former Chief of Staff John Sununu on his new
book, The Quiet Man: The Indispensable Presidency of
George H.W. Bush (Release Date: June 9, 2015).
In this unique insider account, John H. Sununu pays tribute
to his former boss—an intelligent, thoughtful, modest
leader—and his overlooked accomplishments. Sununu
offers unparalleled insight into this statesman who has
been his longtime close friend. He worked with Bush when
he was vice president under Ronald Reagan, helped him
through a contentious GOP primary season and election
in 1988, and as his Chief of Staff, was an active participant
and front-row observer to many of the significant events
of Bush’s presidency. Reverential yet scrupulously honest,
Sununu reveals policy differences and clashes among the
diverse personalities in and out of the White House, giving
credit—and candid criticism—where it’s due. The Quiet Man goes behind the scenes
of this unsung but highly consequential presidency, and illuminates the man at its
center as never before.
