Product Details

Praise

“Jarrett had charted an ideal path for herself — “law school, work, marriage, baby, bliss.” Then her marriage … imploded. She was a single mom and a miserable, mediocre associate at a law firm. The separation and subsequent soul searching prompted her to leave the firm and climb into Chicago politics. The rest was history… Jarrett’s early struggles relay a … life lesson. Her early, mistaken view was that “it was somehow a sign of strength if I had the self-control to never waver from my intended course.”—The New York Times

“A stirring volume illuminating the power of intelligence and grace…Jarrett narrates her journey from Iran, where she was born to American parents, to the West Wing, where she was one of President Obama’s most trusted advisers.”—O Magazine

“[Jarrett] shares the stories you’re dying to hear about what it’s like to advise (and just hang out with) former President Barack Obama.”—Bustle

“Rather than a tell-all that spills salacious secrets, the book is more of a guide that Jarrett hopes will connect with a younger generation…Though large sections are dedicated to her White House years, there’s much more to Jarrett’s story…Throughout, she laces the anecdotes with reflections of what she wishes she knew at the time.”The Chicago Tribune

“Jarrett shares her road from Chicago to the White House…Jarrett is modest and engaging, someone who does not seek nor relish confrontation nor celebration…But for the moment, she is briefly stepping out into the spotlight.”—The Los Angeles Times

“Jarrett movingly captures life as a public servant in this detailed, well-told memoir.”—Publishers Weekly

“Revisiting her illustrious career, from inner-city Chicago to the White House and beyond, Jarrett reveals the life-changing events that, though perilous at the time, enabled her to become a virtuoso corporate and philanthropic leader, and a valued presidential adviser.”—Booklist

“An insightful addition to a growing shelf of books by insiders from the Obama administration.”—Kirkus Reviews
