Personal History by Katharine Graham
Robert B. Barnett, a partner at Williams & Connolly in Washington, D.C., is the lawyer behind some of the best political books published over the past several decades. His clients have included Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
“Personal History is certainly one of the best autobiographies ever written. It contains lessons on personal growth, advice on facing life’s challenges, insights into the ways of governmental and social Washington, business lessons and the history of the Washington Post.”
