Senator Chris Coons said “The most influential lobbyist in the First State has written a book.”
Robert Lee Byrd has been in the know on just about every deal that has gone down in the back rooms and corridors of power in Delaware over some 40 years he has spent as a legislator and lobbyist. Not only has Bob Byrd seen it all, he has seen who was pulling the strings. He knows how to maneuver a governor into not vetoing a bill. He knows the reason people in Delaware can ride motorcycles with the helmet on their motorcycle and not their head. He knows why there were no Budweiser Clydesdales in a parade when Joe Biden was elected vice president.
Described as an inherently fascinating and impressively candid account of 'real world politics' in the hallowed halls of the Delaware state house, Byrd of Legislative Hall is an unreservedly recommended addition to community and academic library political biography collections. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of political science students, academia, and non-specialist general readers.
