Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Kessler provides an impressive amount of dirt on presidents from Johnson to Clinton. The details are lurid.” Boston Globe
“Kessler raises…important issues in this recommended exposé, which will find a large audience in public libraries.” Library Journal
“Because this report seems accurate and few of Kessler’s sources hide behind anonymity, it should garner high…interest.” Booklist 
“Riggenbach paces himself well and never becomes boring as each president gets roasted in some fashion”  Kliatt
