We had the experience but missed the meaning.

Jim Zirin's new book The Mother Court is "a story engagingly, articulately and above all lovingly told".
Lyndon Johnson was a President who knew how to get things
done. During the five years of his Presidency, he pushed through
a reluctant Congress hundreds more legislative initiatives than
most Presidents accomplish in eight. His top domestic aide,
Joe Califano, tells Jim Zirin how he did it.
