This book gives the reader an intimate view of Newt Gingrigh from the perspective of a former colleague, close friend, and member of Gingrich's staff. This insider's view shows Gingrich as an ambitious person, from his childhood to his climb to power, from early involvement in politics to the pinnacle of success as Speaker of the House, and finally his fall from grace in the aftermath of the 1998 general election.

Along the way, the story of Gingrich's personal and political problems and triumphs is revealed, from his controversial first divorce and scandalous ethics problems and his early campaign losses. We also see his rise to national prominence and influence, the development of "Newt, Inc." and his involvement in the "necessary revolution." Finally, by detailing Gingrich's life experiences from childhood to adulthood the nature and development of his conservatism is examined. [From book jacket.]
