    Excellent!

    Well written, insightful account by the man who served on the White House staff from Rooselvelt to Nixon. Interesting behind the scenes view of presidents and first ladies.

    Interesting insight into some of the First Ladies and the White House

    This was an enjoyable book. It gives a perspective of the workings of the White House from the Head Usher's point of view. I found it interesting to learn about the First Ladies that I'm too young to remember and then to learn about the First Ladies I do remember.

    Beautiful insight to the First Ladies who served our country.

    A truly heartwarming account of serving the women who had the position of being the First Lady. Mr. West showed the power and strength these remarkable women held as the President's wife and their work in helping to implement the programs that continue today. The heartwarming and respectful account of each of the families he served is evident of his professionalism and respect for the position he held. Mr. West's description of the events of President Kennedy's death and Mrs. Kennedy's strength was filled with kindness and the emotion he felt brought me to tears. As ordinary people we don't hear or know about the employees of the White House that keep the First Family's accountability in tact and on track at all times.

    Wonderful personal insights into the White House and how it operates as a home.

    I had this book in paperback for years and read it in fascination, getting a glimpse into several First Families' personal lives. I was delighted to find it available for my Nook. The focus is really on Mr. West (the Chief Usher)and his relationships with the First Ladies whom he served. My favorite section, by far, is the Kennedy's and getting to peer into the personal world of Jacqueline Kennedy. I think he was very fond of her, and that he admired her accomplishments. I loved this book!

    If you like White House inside stories, this is for you!

    I'm a White House/First Lady groupie and this book did not disappoint! A real inside look at the ways of many First Ladies and their families. Mr. West is a gentleman so there is no nasty gossip which I found refreshing. This book concentrates on the day to day workings of the White House, which is a story all by itself.

    History that is fun to read

    A newsy, down at home look at the white house and the families who lived there, from the Roosevelt's to the Johnson's. Easy to read and a pleasant fairly non political commentary on life in America during these years. I really enjoyed this book.

    Good read for those who like behind the scenes

    The WH is a little world of its own but dont staff workers there have to sigh a non discloser agreement now? Or is that just for Buckingham Palace? Mom

    Very informative

    I enjoyed this book about the first ladies..a behind the scene glimpse of life in the white house. J.B.West told his experiences as Chief Usher with the upmost respect for his employers. No gossip, no scandals just honest reporting. I especially enjoyed the description of the living quarters and history of fhe furnishings.

    Things you didn't know about first ladies written in a good way

    Not a gossipy book. But, details about the first ladies written with respect for them. Changes your attitude about some of these ladies and he makes them more likeable.

    stories of first ladies of the land****

    an interesting book, funny to learn Nixon wasn't the only rat in the white house, they had real ones as well! all of the first ladies were just full of hospitality, ideas & innovation. it did lack any controversial info, or sexy stuff though.

    Lovely book

    an interesting history of a few First Ladies in their time at the White House. the author provided small glimpses of what these ladies dealt with in both their public and private lives, without being too personal. He is very much the gentleman regarding the First Ladies and mustt certainly been quite the diplomat to have been in his position so long. The logistical details of managing the White House were fascinating, as well as some the historical scenes Mr. West provided.
