Publisher's Summary

"If the general public knew what was going on inside the White House, they would scream." So states one Secret Service agent, just a small link in the chain of security that has guarded the public image of the presidency and the men who define it - until now.

With unprecedented access to Secret Service agents, domestic servants, Air Force One stewards, and military aides, journalist Ronald Kessler has gone behind the scenes to uncover the inside story of the White House.

From the hidden lives of the last seven presidents and first families to the intricate inner workings of this all-powerful institution, Kessler peels away the White House facade to reveal the fascinating and often scandalous reality behind the stately illusion. Exposing presidential misconduct, blunders, and cover-ups, this fascinating examination ensures that Americans will never view their chief executives the same way again.

Politically slanted, but interesting.

The author definitely has some conservative tendencies. He really had it out and had a lot of negative things to say especially about Carter and Clinton. I was thinking this book was a little bit more recent; I didn’t realize it ended mid-Clinton presidency. I would be very interested to hear the author’s thoughts on presidents since Clinton.

All that said, the behind the scenes stories are interesting for all the presents included in this book. (Although I am willing to bet that some are exaggerated.)
