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 :)

By turns enlightening: I didn't know George Washington's presidential salary was the equivalent of $ 1 million in today's dollars (without his picture on them). Lurid: (of course) JFK's 'profilgate sex life', Clinton, ad nauseum. Questionably tasteful: one president's frequency of flatulation - [did the Secret Service actually keep count?]. Gossipy: LBJ's penchant for titilating shower sprays. And disgusting: JFK's 'Jack in the Box' reference -- (Kennedy is a big target in O'Brien's sites). This book is predominantly a conventional recitation of accepted facts about American presidents -- couched in a theme appropriate for the National Enquirer or Larry Flynt -- intermixed with some ribald zingers. It is especially suited for the tickleishly prurient (not the academic) in all of us. Bottom line fact it communicates: Presidents are, after all, human -- with all that that implies.
