Overview

Includes all-new chapter about the 45th POTUS, Donald J. Trump.

This updated and redesigned edition of Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents features outrageous and uncensored profiles of our commanders in chief—complete with hundreds of little-known, politically incorrect, and downright wacko facts. You’ll discover that:

• Teddy Roosevelt was blinded in a White House boxing match
• John Quincy Adams loved to skinny-dip in the Potomac River
• Gerald Ford once worked as a Cosmopolitan magazine cover model
• Warren G. Harding gambled with White House china when he ran low on cash
• Jimmy Carter reported a UFO sighting in Georgia

With chapters on everyone from George Washington to Donald Trump, Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents tackles all the tough questions that other history books are afraid to ask: Which president claimed that God struck down Abraham Lincoln on purpose? How many of these folks were cheating on their spouses? And are there really secret tunnels underneath the White House? American history was never this much fun in school!

This book is really entertaining for those who are interested in learning about the U.S. Presidents! It's not dry, long, and dull like some of the books out there. It gives you interesting facts and trivia about each of the presidents, even the ones we don't even know much about. This is a great read and I recommend it for history buffs, it's a break from all the long books we're so used to reading :)
