The book is about the secret service. He is a conservative but had a great deal of respect for those he protected, no matter the political leaning. He left because it was a 24/7 job and had little time for his family. This is a interesting book. I would recommend reading the book before posting a comment.

I suppose that is why he left before getting retirement benefits. They weren't worth it!

Book is more of a political why he doesn't like the Obama Administration then a book about the Secret Service.
