BushScott McClellan was one of a few Bush loyalists from Texas who became part of his inner circle of trusted advisers, and remained so during one of the most challenging and contentious periods of recent history. Drawn to Bush by his commitment to compassionate conservatism and strong bipartisan leadership, McClellan served the president for more than seven years, and witnessed day-to-day exactly how the presidency veered off course.In this refreshingly clear-eyed book, written with no agenda other than to record his experiences and insights for the benefit of history, McClellan provides unique perspective on what happened and why it happened the way it did, including the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina, Washington's bitter partisanship and two hotly-contested presidential campaigns.

What Happened Reviews


"Seattle Post-Intelligencer," June 5, 2008
"Once smoke clears, McClellan will be seen as a true patriot."
"Associated Press," June 20, 2008
"McClellan has burned the talking points -- and his bridges -- in writing this book, and the results are a more sophisticated assessment than most anything his former colleagues turned out. "What Happened" provides a telling and unflattering glimpse of Bush and his White House, also makes an important commentary on Washington's poisonous political climate -- one that Bush promised to change, but did not, McClellan writes."
