Product Overview

"Spin Cycle" is the first behind-the-scenes account of the White House political operation as it packages and shapes the news by manipulating, misleading, and in some cases, intimidating the press. It is also the tale of how some of the nation's top journalists buy into these efforts and, often, put their own spin on the news.

Compelling, infuriating, often devastatingly funny, this is the story you should read before you pick up the newspaper tomorrow morning.
