Fighting Back : Best-selling author and award-winning White House correspondent Bill Sammon uses his unparalleled White House access -- including revealing one-on-one interviews with President George W. Bush, conducted on Air Force One and elsewhere -- to show how the president is conducting a new kind of war, and has become a new kind of president. Fighting Back follows Bush from September 11, 2001, in the most detailed account yet of that terrible day. Through personal interviews with President Bush and dramatic reporting, we learn what the President thought, how he acted, who advised him, and why events unfolded the way they did after the terrorist attacks. Sammon follows Bush as he speaks at the National Cathedral and before the joint Session of Congress, addresses the firefighters in New York, and orchestrates -- against innumerable critics who said it was impossible -- the speedy overthrow of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
