Includes all-new chapter for the 45th POTUS. This updated and redesigned edition of Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents features outrageous and uncensored profiles of our commanders in chief--complete with hundreds of little-known, politically incorrect, and downright wacko facts. You'll discover that: - Teddy Roosevelt was blinded in a White House boxing match - John Quincy Adams loved to skinny-dip in the Potomac River - Gerald Ford once worked as a Cosmopolitan magazine cover model - Warren G. Harding gambled with White House china when he ran low on cash - Jimmy Carter reported a UFO sighting in Georgia With chapters on everyone from George Washington to President #45, whoever he (or she!) may be, Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents tackles all the tough questions that other history books are afraid to ask: Which president claimed that God struck down Abraham Lincoln on purpose? How many of these folks were cheating on their spouses? And are there really secret tunnels underneath the White House? American history was never this much fun in school!

MY THOUGHTS

This is for the latest and greatest Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents now updated with the latest.  Time will tell if he is the greatest, but so far, it isn’t looking very good.  I have the previous edition of this sweet little read  I mean, haven’t you ever wondered how tall each president was? Each chapter included a short synopsis of each president and interesting factoids.  You can find out which president had gambling issues, mistress problems and even some who should have resigned.  This is the perfect book to leave in your guest bathroom or give as a gift.  Quirk Books usually is known for interesting reads and this doesn’t disappoint.
