By Lou Schuler As a history buff, and a friend of author Gregg Stebben, I picked up White House Confidential with the assumption that I'd know almost everything in it. I'm both happy and humbled to say I couldn't have been more wrong. For example, I knew that James Buchanan was probably our only gay president, but I didn't know he'd been a prizefighter in his youth. Or that Grover Cleveland, as a county sheriff, had twice pulled the lever to execute prisoners. Or that Andrew Johnson -- a serious contender with Buchanan for worst president in U.S. history -- tailored his own suits.Gregg, though, is convinced that Warren Harding was our worst, and makes a convincing argument based on Harding's daily White House schedule: ping-pong every morning, a break at noon to greet visitors, tennis every afternoon, and golf and poker twice a week. Knowing how much value he placed on his own recreation makes it easier to understand why his appointees thought they could get away with schemes like the Teapot Dome scandal. If you know the boss isn't paying attention, why not?I highly recommend White House Confidential to anyone with an interest in politics and the presidency, in particular the gossip, trivia, and other tidbits that tend to fall between the couch cushions of mainstream presidential history. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Captivating, Enlightening & Funny! By Rich Conners - Business Consultant While I pride myself in my knowledge of American History and presidential politics, there was so much new and fascinating information that nearly every page was both captivating and enlightening. The authors' wit and humor make this such a fun and easy read. Although it is highly irreverent, it is factual and non-partisan. And, as a business consultant and public speaker, I now have an abundance of great new factoids to spice up my conversations and presentations. I have bought several copies as gifts, and have enthusiastically recommended it to friends, family and clients. 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Weirdness at the top By Bookman Reader Considering all the 'weird' things that have gone on in that building over the last 200-odd years, it's surprising that this is a 'little' book of 'weird presidential history.' I loved this -- a great read for the commute home from work with your 'weird' boss. It's reassuring to know that the country also has a lot of weirdness at the top. The selection of anecdotes is very cool and often surprising. A lot of tun, and a cool gift for anybody who has a taste for the odd and eccentric stuff of history. See all 4 customer reviews...
