This book looked interesting so I took a chance on it. I found it to be very interesting right from the start, and it kept my attention all the way through. If you have ever been interested in a behind the scenes look at past presidencies, and a look inside the Secret Service, this book is for you. I was surprised at how rude and ill mannered some of our president's have been. This book will open your eyes to what politicians do when they are out of the public eye. It also goes into detail about what the Secret Service does and how it was formed, and how it has adapted over the years. You will not be disappointed with this book!
