Praise for Annie Bracken:
"This book is a riot, bright and breezy, whose pages sparkle with unlikely insights into official Washington, with a first person flavour of what goes on behind the closed doors of power. Every line is worth the ticket; the fun is in the reading. It is on the tennis courts that she meets and sometimes is wooed by Washington’s high and mighty." - John Carlin, author of Invictus
"One of the most remarkable books I have ever read... Your stories have motivated me to pursue my dreams. You are unstoppable." - Katty Rodrigues
"Hilarious, engaging, and sincere, Ann Bracken recounts her rise through the ranks with a levity that often lacks in others’ biographies on their careers... It’s a breath of fresh air. It’s sincere." Joseph van Deinse
"Your book was so much fun (especially guessing who was who) that I read it all at once." Chase Untermeyer, Senior Assistant to President George HW Bush and Director, Voice of America
"An absolute necessity read for all youthful people trying to climb the ladder of governmental issues. A fun, speedy, and straightforward diary that gives a captivating background look at working life at the White House." Trishita Das, Goodreads
