A very interesting and enjoyable read about President Grover Cleveland and his secret surgery to remove cancer in his mouth in 1893. It's not only a story about that, but also about the cover up to keep the surgery secret , the reporter who found out and tried to let the public know, and finally about the life and times of late 19th century America. It's a quick read and definitely worth the time. I especially enjoyed reading about how casual life in the White House was 100 years ago. People could just walk in and walk upstairs to see the president!

The President is a Sick Man offers insight into presidential history that I have never read or heard of before. The presentation was very interesting and kept my attention. The last 25% of the book started to lose me because I feel the author was just trying to fill pages. However, overall I feel the book was well written and worth my time. Any person who enjoys reading about American history should enjoy this book.

A fascinating look into a little known part of american history. The book not only covers the events leading up to and following the surgery but, the book also goes into the political and social aspects of the time to give reason why the surgery was so dangerous and secretive.

Interesting and a very good look at journalism in Cleveland's time. This was a historical cover-up story that I never knew about. I Enjoyed it!

this book is really interesting, but the writing is not all that great. the book does not capture me as the reader as some other books have. There is also some parts of the book that drag on and on and have nothing to do with the story at hand. I'm just not impressed.

This book is a riveting read from first sentence to last. Whether you are a history buff or you enjoy a good mystery, this is the book for you. Picked it up to read for just a bit and could not put it down. This book does not disappoint. It delivers from beginning to end. Be amazed. Be amused. But most of all be entertained. This book has it all. If you are especially interested in forgotten chapters of our nation's history, you will be glad you purchased this little gem.

The book addresses a little-known event in American history which may have changed the way the economic crisis of that time was handled. It is still truly amazing that in these days of immediate and 24-hours news something like this could have been kept a secret. It is not that amazing that, even in those days, there was a snitch.
