Drawing from his thousands of pages of notes written while serving as chief of staff to Speaker of the House Pelosi, Lawrence has written a narrative documenting his insider perspective from 2005-2010. The momentous years between 2005 and 2010 included furious political and legislative battles over the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the economic recession, the 2008 presidential election, the productive first two years of Barack Obama’s presidency, as well as many key legislative products, such as the Troubled Assets Relief Program, the Affordable Care Act, and Wall Street reform.
