Even thought I like parts of Genovese's book, I did not agree with certain comments he makes. He suggest, "don't be yourself." While not being yourself may be a quicker ticket to success, the American people want their President to be a person they know, not someone who is fake.
My favorite part of the book was the chapter called "The Paradoxes of the American Presidency." I thought it was really interesting to read about all of paradoxes that the American public expect from a President. Although I liked the book, I was annoyed that he stuck arrogant and cocky comments throughout. After seeing him speak in person I feel like his personality comes out in his book more than I thought.
