The Crown Publishing Group

Chris Whipple will join former White House chief of staff James Baker to discuss Whipple's new book, "THE GATEKEEPERS: How the White House Chiefs of Staff Define Every Presidency." Based on extensive, intimate interviews with all seventeen living chiefs of staff and two former presidents, THE GATEKEEPERS is the first in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at how the American presidency has hinged on the effectiveness of the White House chiefs of staff, the confidants who make the difference between success and failure. The book has received glowing praise from Tom Brokaw, Christopher Buckley, James Fallows, Charles Gibson, and more.
