An Excellent Perspective
Taken from Stephanopoulos' perspective this is an excellent listen. I originally purchased this on cassette when it first came out and listened to it several times. While some of the issues that where important to us at that time seem trivial in the post 9/11 world, the insight brought to these events from his position in the Clinton group is extremely interesting. The fact that George is reading it makes it even better. There are a lot of positions expressed about the many personalities involved as well as the good things accomplished, the mistakes, and the opportunities squandered.

The best primer for business and life.
I carried a copy of this book under my passenger seat for years, so that if I had to wait somewhere, I could reach from the driver's seat over to the passengers seat and grab my copy of All Too Human.
I have worked my way up through management, (owned my own mowing company from ages 7 to 17, made my way up through management to Chief Operations Officer, etc) and this is the best primer for how to talk to power both above, below, and equal to you.
This is the best book for how to work with both genders, and people of power in the other gender. I cannot stress how great of a training book this is. And that is before you take in to account it is one of the greatest political and historical books ever regarding completely changing how presidents get elected.
There are two major changes in the modern presidency: 1. The addition of television. 2. The techniques Stephanopoulos, Carville, and Begala used to get Clinton elected.
This book should be required reading in every high school in America (I lean Republican by the way, and it is in no way a Democratic love note).
This is my favorite book of all time, from long before there was an Audible. While it says it is unabridged, I have a signed first edition, and I feel the hard copy is longer. But for an audio book, this is a great start.
