About the Author:

About The Author Marlin Fitzwater spent a decade in the front row of history, as press secretary to Presidents Reagan and Bush. From 1983 to 1992, his voice reassured the world in times of turmoil and change. Today he is an author and lecturer whose presidential anecdotes, political analysis, and television commentary have received world wide attention. As the only press secretary in history to be appointed by two Presidents, Fitzwater became known to millions of Americans as the voice of the 26 nation coalition in the Persian Gulf War. Often wearing a wide brim hat and an open smile, Fitzwater stood next to two Presidents during cold war summits, economic downturns, and eight military conflicts. He gave over 850 press briefings in six years, winning praise from the news media and the public for his honesty and good humor.
