"The presidency of Gerald R. Ford feels a world away--not simply in time, but in ethos. In this wonderful contribution to history, Donald Rumsfeld, who served President Ford as White House chief of staff and as secretary of Defense, gives a new generation an absorbing and important reflection on Ford and what the 38th president meant. The vital center in which Ford so deeply believed is facing an existential crisis in our own time, and Rumsfeld's book could not be more relevant or timely." -- &#8212Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author
"As a proud alumnus of the Ford Administration, I can attest that Don Rumsfeld's skillful and fascinating account of those critical years has done the President justice. This book, based on Don's real-time memos, is essential reading to anyone seeking to understand the American presidency, as Ford and his team rescued and remade it during unprecedented turmoil." -- &#8212Dick Cheney, former Vice President
"Gerald Ford is one of the most underrated presidents. He steadied the nation after Nixon and made peace in Vietnam. Donald Rumsfeld, who was Ford's chief of staff and secretary of defense, captures the essence of Ford and brings it home. When the Center Held is a magnificent book that should be read by every American." -- &#8212Jean Edward Smith, bestselling author of BUSH
