First Family Detail:Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents by Ronald Kessler

My family and I closely follow politics and I like to be "in the know".  So when I had the opportunity to read and review "The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents" by Ronald Kessler, I knew I had to read it.

First of all, this is the first book of its type that I have read.  I understand some say that the author's previous book is strikingly similar.  I cannot attest to that.

What I can say, though, is if these accounts are accurate, I am saddened by how the Secret Service has been treated by so many.  Yes, not all protectees have been rude, crude, or inconsiderate, but it is unfortunate that so many have reportedly been so.  I suppose if the book only included the good stories, it wouldn't have the same appeal.  I was surprised to see so many agents' names that added to the validity of the information  The book also includes a little about the Secret Service and what they must do to protect a traveling dignitary.

If you like politics or political gossip, I would recommend this book.  Adults only, though.
