ED O’KEEFE, senior White House and political correspondent, CBS News The Man Who Ran Washington: The Life and Times of James A. Baker III by Peter Baker and Susan Glasser “It’s a thoughtfully reported and written biography of the former White House chief of staff—and secretary of state and treasury—by the wife- husband team of Susan Glasser and Peter Baker; it also retells several key moments from the later years of the 20th century.” Zero Fail: The Rise and Fall of the Secret Service by Carol Leonnig “A definitive account of one of the most important and discreet agencies in the federal government, [this book] sounds several alarm bells about how it’s stretched dangerously thin.”

ReadAll About It Thrillers! Biographies! Self-Help! CBS stars share the books they’re diving into.

TRACEY E. BREGMAN, actress, The Young and the Restless How to Do the Work by Dr. Nicole LePera “It was recommended to me by my Soul Pack business partner, motivational speaker Dale Smith Thomas; Soul Pack is an interactive journal coming to market very soon. We are doing a ‘deep dive’ for our project and love to read inspiring books like this one.”

BRETT GRAY, actor, Star Trek: Prodigy The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho “I’m rereading this book. It’s about how you already have the treasure you seek; it exists within you. But the book emphasizes that the journey to it, and sometimes away from it, is what makes it all worth it in the end.”

JENNY DELL, CBS Sports reporter, College Football My Lovely Wife

DELON DE METZ, actor, The Bold and the Beautiful Appeasement by Tim Bouverie “The book chronicles the events leading up to WW2, specifically the path of appeasement followed by the British government in regard to Germany. I’ve always been a fan of history, and the middle of the 20th century provides for remarkable storytelling. Aside from the drama, there are similarities between the state of global diplomacy prior to the onset of the Second World War and the state of international diplomacy today that provides additional intrigue.”

by Samantha Downing “You get drawn in immediately, and the book keeps you on your toes with the many twists and turns—you will be on the edge of your seat in sweet anticipation of what happens next. It’s an absolute roller coaster of a read, and one I really enjoyed from beginning to end.”
