The Chairman

The Rise and Betrayal of Jim Greer

Peter Golenbock

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The Chairman, a Shakespearean tale of friendship and betrayal that rivals that of Hamlet, is the harrowing story of Jim Greer, a man loyal to a fault to Florida Governor Charlie Crist, his benefactor. Greer trusts Crist to protect him from the onslaught of the Tea Party wing of the party, only to watch as Crist stabs him in the back and helps send him to prison in order to try to save his own political career. 

It’s also a political tell-all, the truth about how wealth begets power in Republican-led state politics. The book details the secret deals, the dirty pool, the payoffs. It’s also very personal, an inside look at the brotherly relationship between Greer and Crist, the ruthlessness of potential Presidential candidate Marco Rubio and attorney general Bill McCollum, as well as at every turn political treachery.

Customer Reviews

Surprisingly good book

Didn't expect much, but heard from a friend in Tallahassee that it's pretty good. It does not disappoint. Had a hard time putting my iPad down. This is told from Greer's perspective, so I discount a lot of it, but he's a fairly believable (and incredibly flawed) character. I've been familiar with Crist since his 92 election to the Florida Senate and I know him to be exactly as described. Must read for Florida or national political types who are involved in FL politics or were involved in the 08 races. Also a great read for young staffers as a case study in what blind loyalty and ambition can result in. Definitely a judgement enhancer. Parents, give this to your ideological kids embarking on a career in politics. If they read it, you'll both be glad you did.
