White House Confidential

( 1 )

Overview

Most Americans believe that in the past our presidents were smarter, more honest, and behaved more like gentlemen than those we elect today.

"Long before Watergate, Contragate, Travelgate, Nannygate, and Monicagate, our presidents were lying, cheating, stealing, and womanizing."

Overview

Most Americans believe that in the past our presidents were smarter, more honest, and behaved more like gentlemen than those we elect today.

"Long before Watergate, Contragate, Travelgate, Nannygate, and Monicagate, our presidents were lying, cheating, stealing, and womanizing."
White House: Confidential authors Gregg Stebben and Austin Hill.

White House: Confidential is a clear-eyed look at America's long line of presidents, warts and all. Focusing on the qualities that never made it into the press releases, the authors look at the strange family relationships, scandals that engulfed their administrations, fights with enemies, and questionable money matters.

The first controversial edition of White House: Confidential featured:

  • A "presidential score card" of which presidents cheated on their wives (and with whom)
  • Random acts of goofy presidential behavior
  • Their frequently accurate predictions of their own demise
  • Their comments on leaving office
  • How they died
  • Presidential firsts
  • And the role of vice presidents

Two new chapters have been added in this revised and updated edition:

  • "Impeached!" looks at how impeachment and the threat of impeachment have affected several presidents.
  • "Nepotism! A Family Affair!" shows how presidential relatives have exploited their connections. Yet others have used a relative's presidency as a springboard to their own.

PRAISE FOR WHITE HOUSE: CONFIDENTIAL:

"The authors are superbly gifted, almost facile writers; one might describe them as the Cheech and Chong of presidential history."
Bob Cheeks, IntellectualConservative.com

"Although it's far from a textbook, its anecdotes and analysis make for an entertaining afternoon."
Kyle Tonniges, The Reader

    A Refreshing View of American Presidents

    Messrs. Stebben and Hill have written a hilarious and informative book filled with delightful bits and pieces of presidential lives. While we often view our past presidents (especially our founding fathers) with reverence, this book allows the reader to see them as the mere mortals we all are. Job well done!
