About the Author

Robert B. Reich is University Professor of social and economic policy at Brandeis University's Heller School. He served as Secretary of Labor in the first Clinton administration. This is his seventh book. He lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with his wife and their two sons.


Reich, the secretary of labor for President Clinton's first term, relates the successes, failures, and frustrations of being a liberal in a centrist administration. His diary brims with stories about successful programs for the poor, the rage of displaced workers, and the futility of trying to pass legislation on behalf of the most vulnerable members of society. Reich tried to use his office as "secretary of little people," fighting against corporate greed and the growing chasm between rich and poor by advocating retraining and education programs that would let workers remain productive in a global society. He knows how to laugh at himself and does not mince words about those he dislikes, notably Republican House leader Newt Gingrich and Dick Morris, the recently banished Clinton pollster. Reich's engaging style is similar to Leonard Garment's in his critically acclaimed Crazy Rhythm (LJ 2/1/97). Highly recommended for public libraries and a strong candidate for academic collections.‘Karl Helicher, Upper Merion Twp. Lib., King of Prussia, Pa.
