Interesting, Entertaining & a Little Sad!

In his newest book, The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents, Ronald Kessler seeks to give readers an inside look at those inside the White House.  Often times I found myself laughing at the incredulous actions of people.  I have to assume this book is true, and if that is correct, then I wonder why more people don’t know the conduct of those inside the White House, since character directly impacts the way I vote.

I wanted to be certain that Kessler gave equal treatment to Democrats and Republicans.  He really slammed the Clinton’s and other Democrats.  Was not as harsh on the Obama’s, but did indicate many in the Secret Service and those who worked in the White House did not like Nancy Reagan. 

There were some interesting interludes between chapters about the personnel and the preparation for those in the Secret Service.  I found those chapters interesting.  Those who I thought were bizarre and narcissistic confirmed my thinking. 

This book was very easy to read.  It was informative, and in some respects troubling about the way our government, especially the way our leaders run the nation, their lives and sadly, the way many treat those within the White House and their disdain of military and police.  That was sad and wish that could be brought to light even more so. 

Overall, I enjoyed the book, and would recommend it to others wanting to read something like this.

I received this book from www.bloggingforbooks.org, in exchange for an honest review.
