It has been over twenty years since the show premiered, but the love for this iconic show is alive and well. Aaron Sorkin’s fast-talking and hall-walking vision of Jed Bartlet’s White House is viewed as an idealised world where principles trump politics, and the good guys usually prevail.

Go behind the scenes and see the ins and outs of the workings of the White House.

Figure out which West Wing staffer you are like, more a CJ Cregg or a Josh Lyman. Evaluate the merits of some Big Block of Cheese proposals, to see if it’s worth spending tax-payers money on a wolf-only superhighway (a steal at only $900 million!).

Make the finest muffins and bagels in all the land with Josh, and get some life lessons from Leo, who’s been down a hole before, so can always offer a guiding light to help you out. Get initiated as a junior staffer, with tasks such as how to make popcorn and tips on how not to bring down the White House communication system with a recipe for raisin bran muffins. Let Sam Seaborn share his tips on how to write the most wonderful birthday messages and take lessons from Charlie on the best way to prank a White House Press Secretary.

This unofficial fan’s guide celebrates the The West Wing’s legacy and is tailored to all those who have lemonlyman.com bookmarked on their internet browsers.

As well as the fan fiction-y elements above, this book includes The West Wing season overviews, top episode guides, cast profiles and more.
