Life Inside the Bubble: Why a Top-Ranked Secret Service Agent Walked Away from It All (Hardcover)
by Dan Bongino
New York Times Bestseller
Why would a successful, 12-year Secret Service agent resign his position in the prime of his career to run for political office against all odds? Why is it that the Washington, DC, lobbyists, cronies, staff, acolytes, consultants and bureaucrats surrounding the president create a "bubble" which distorts his view of the world and detaches him from the tragic results of his poor policy choices?
Sean Hannity interview:
Finally, why would the Fast and Furious scandal, the bombings in Boston and the terrorist attacks in Benghazi be harbingers of what's to come without a bold change in direction?
Take the journey with Dan Bongino from the tough streets of New York City where he was raised, and where he later patrolled as a member of the NYPD, to the White House as a member of the elite Presidential Protective Division, through his ultimate decision to resign from the Secret Service in the prime of his career to run for the United States Senate against the feared Maryland Democratic machine.
Follow his experiences inside the Washington, D.C., "Bubble" and uncover why a government, filled with some of the incredibly dedicated people he encountered while within it, continues to make tragic mistakes.
"Dan Bongino walked away because he is an American Patriot and the embodiment of the highest standards of honor, integrity, and character...exactly what we need inside the bubble" – Allen B. West, Lieutenant Colonel (U.S. Army, retired), member of the 112th Congress
"A rare peek inside the DC 'Bubble' which should be a wake-up call to every American." – Sean Hannity, New York Times No. 1 bestselling author and Fox News Channel host
