about this item

Were past presidents smarter, more honest, and better behaved that those we elect today? Don’t bet on it! White House Confidential shows that commanders-in-chief have been lying, cheating, stealing, and womanizing since the days of the Founding Fathers. Focusing on the qualities that never made it into the press releases, the authors look at their strange family relationships, scandals that engulfed administrations, fights with enemies, and questionable money matters.
Dip into these pages to find out:
Which president lived at the White House with both his wife and his mistress?
Which president had to borrow money from a neighbor so he could travel to his own inauguration?
Which president and his family left the White House lights on every night because they were afraid to touch the switches?
Of which president’s death was Dorothy Parker speaking when she asked, ?How could they tell?”
Which president hand-made his own suits?

Updated to include the exploits and personality tics of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, White House Confidential will have you taking a second look at the next occupant of the Oval Office.
