Inside the Room Where It Happens

A compelling worldwide memoir providing a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the most well-kept secrets in global diplomacy.


Few people have had the opportunity to sit in the company of world leaders as they discuss impactful decisions in the same breaths as they make polite conversation. Over the course of several decades, Yona Bartal’s long and exciting career as Deputy Director of the Israeli President’s Office has made her a fly on some of the most politically charged rooms in the world – the oval office of presidents Bush, Clinton, and Obama, the Russian Kremlin, and even the Vatican’s inner chambers.


Throughout Inside the Room Where it Happens, Bartal recount and expose crucial and sometimes confidential meetings and events that helped shape the middle east, giving readers a rare glimpse into global diplomacy in action: From historic peace talks with foreign powers to forging worldwide friendships with renown activists Bono and Madonna over drinks.


Through her childhood as a daughter of Lithuanian immigrants and her lifelong bond with Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shimon Peres, Bartal’s book is an eloquent yet humble diplomatic memoir, told from the unique perspective of the only woman in the rooms where it happens.
