A wonderfully detailed book about the butler who served for deca

A wonderfully detailed book about the butler who served for decades in the White House. At times it seems like a promotion for the movie, but the writing is solid and the story is strong.

Where is the book?? 85 pages of the movie promotion. Mr. Eugene Allen was neglected. I wanted to read about Mr. Allen and the 34 years he worked in the White House. NOT!!! Very little story about Mr. Allen. The photographs were nice, but I thought I bought a book....

Very little story about Mr. Allen. The photographs were nice, but I thought I bought a book. Please don't buy this book you will be greatly disappointed. I think we could get a better story about Mr. Allen on Google and reading the net.

    This is a darn good book filled with insight and observation spa

    This is a darn good book filled with insight and observation spanning three decades in the White House. It isn't just a White House book though. There is great insight into equal rights for all races.
