Item Description...
"The rule of thumb in any White House is that nobody is indispensable except the president," said The New York Times, "but Karen Hughes has come as close to that description as any recent presidential aide." Karen Hughes has worked beside President George W. Bush since, as she says, "the motorcade was only one car and he was sometimes the one driving it." As counselor to the president, she brought the working mom s perspective to the White House, often asking of President Bush s policies, "What does this mean for the average person?" Yet the move from Texas to Washington was hard on her family, and in a controversial, headline-making decision that reverberated across America, she summoned the courage to say, "Mr. President, I love you, but I need to move my family home to Texas." There, Hughes continues to advise the president, where the kitchen wall calendar marks the State of the Union message side by side with her son s orthodontist appointments. Reading Ten Minutes from Normal - the title comes from the campaign trail - one is instantly absorbed in what it s like to be a "normal" person who goes to work at the White House as a part of the president s inner circle. Told in Karen Hughes s disarmingly down-to-earth, warm, often funny, and frank voice, the book is a remarkable blend of an ordinary woman s life, with all its compromises and everyday decisions, and a keenly insightful look at American politics and America s forty-third president. This is a book for the legions of women and men everywhere who are seeking new inspiration for how to reorder their priorities and achieve balance in their lives. Most important, in a post-9/11 world, Hughes redefines the very notion of what is "normal" as something special and precious, never to be taken for granted in America again."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Check your closets, she writes, so you will see the marvels of globalization, all because of her boss, Bush, whom she sees through rose-colored glasses for sure. I wonder if she knows our homes are now full of stuff made in China, which has caused the loss of millions of jobs, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, that China holds much of the american debt, perhaps that trillion dollars for a war which has not been paid for yet. This is a book of admiration for an emperor without clothes. It is scary that people like her actually work and have a say in White House affairs. And oh, Karen, read American history or Noam Chomsky instead of the bible for a few days and you'll soon realize what a cruel and uncivilized country America was and still is. This is a lady who holds her bible close to her heart, but heartily endorses war by anticipation, killing thousand without giving them a fighting chance. Wow, way to go Karen, just stay home and take care of your diamond ring and please no more over-the-top books, because you won't be able to find friends to even write good reviews.
fascinating, inspiring  Feb 13, 2008
I highly recommend this book.
The negative reviews here are obviously from those
who have a different political position than the author.

How sad some can't look past partisan politics to enjoy
a book. FYI: There are talented people in BOTH parties
& I find it inspiring to read about those who choose
to use their considerable talents in service to their
country and what they believe is best for it.
Personal journal of a political leader, suporter of President Bush - Karen Hughes  Oct 17, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. It gives a good insight into a busy life of a politician..

BEAWERE, Karen Hughes is a friend and a supporter of President Bush, so if you lack respect for the president you won't rate this book very high!
An Inside Look  Jun 12, 2007
I really enjoyed reading this book! It is like having an inside look into the life of our president and some of the people who work closely with him. It is easy reading and very interesting. It is also very inspiring.

Happy Reading!!!
Excellent!  Apr 2, 2007
This is a very well written and absorbing insight into the lives and goings-on of our government. I could hardly put it down.
