#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Cassidy Hutchinson’s desk was mere steps from the most controversial president in recent American history. Now, she provides a riveting account of her extraordinary experiences as an idealistic young woman thrust into the middle of a national crisis, where she risked everything to tell the truth about some of the most powerful people in Washington. Ever since a childhood visit to Washington, DC, Cassidy Hutchinson aspired to serve her country in government. Raised in a working-class family with a military background, she was the first in her immediate family to graduate from college. Despite having no ties to Washington, Hutchinson landed a vital position at the center of the Trump White House. Her life took a dramatic turn on January 6th, 2021, when, at twenty-four, she found herself in one of the most extraordinary and unprecedented calamities in modern political history. Hutchinson was faced with a choice between loyalty to the Trump administration or loyalty to the country by revealing what she saw and heard in the attempt to overthrow a democratic election. She bravely came forward to become the pivotal witness in the House January 6 investigations, as her testimony transfixed and stunned the nation. In her memoir, Hutchinson reveals the struggle between the pressures she confronted to toe the party line and the demands of the oath she swore to defend American democracy. Enough reaches far beyond the typical insider political account. It’s the saga of a woman whose fierce determination helped her overcome childhood challenges to get her dream job, only to face a crisis of conscience—one that more senior White House aides tried to evade—and, in the process, find her voice and herself. This is a portrait of how the courage of one person can change the course of history.

"This poised and lovely woman represented the *only* person with courage and a spine during the January 6 insurrection investigations. Cassidy Hutchinson reveals her early life — including a government-hating suspicious dad — and eventually her thrill of finding a home as a legislative intern and then as “the chief of staff of Trump’s Chief of Staff.” Most notably, Hutchinson had a front-row seat to the January 6, 2021, insurrection and the hatred and violence Donald Trump’s lies unleashed. While my principles and politics are not Cassidy’s, I was brought to tears several times by her truth-telling in the face of the lying men in Trump World who urged her to ignore a government subpoena and to lie on stand. She is 28 years old as of 2H2023 and displays inspirational depth of commitment and grace."
