    Upon assuming the presidency in 1953, Dwight Eisenhower came to be seen by many as a doddering lightweight. Yet behind the bland smile and apparent simplemindedness was a brilliant, intellectual tactician. As Evan Thomas reveals in his provocative examination of Ike's White House years, Eisenhower was a master of calculated duplicity. As with his bridge and poker games he was eventually forced to stop playing, Ike could be patient and ruthless in the con, and generous and expedient in his partnerships.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think it's a good book that is worth reading/listening to; however, if you've read about Eisenhower's Administration before, you won't find much eyeopening in this book.
