Among the tidbits reportedly in the book: what senior White House aides said privately about Harriet Miers; Bush confessing that his dog, Barney, was the son he never had; National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley's penchant for eating off a silver platter and how Karl Rove mocked Hadley by serving him off a silver tray himself; and what the Bushies really thought about everyone from Bill Clinton to Obama to Palin.
