Publisher's Summary

Laugh with political humorist Gerald Gardner, as she takes an entertaining and probing look at how our last six Presidents have deliberately and effectively employed humor to achieve their political goals. In a special live recording of his best-selling book, Gardner sounds remarkably like JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan, as he demonstrates how our Chief Executives have made strategic use of humor to win people over, to avoid sensitive issues, to defuse tense situations, and to deflect criticism.

From the elegant wit of Kennedy to the genial joking of Reagan, you'll hear an insider's insights about the increasingly influential role humor plays in the political arena, and the tangled relationship between the worlds of politics and show business.
