The First Family Detail Ronald Kessler read online review & book description:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER  • Ron Kessler appears to get everything first.”—Slate

As in a play, presidents, vice presidents, and presidential candidates perform onstage for the public and the media. What the nation’s leaders are really like and what goes on behind the scenes remain hidden. Secret Service agents have a front-row seat on their private lives and those of their wives and children. Crammed with new headline-making revelations, The First Family Detail by New York Times bestselling author Ronald Kessler tells that eye-opening, uncensored story.

The First Family Detail reveals:

• Vice President Joe Biden regularly orders the Secret Service to keep his military aide with the nuclear football a mile behind his motorcade, potentially leaving the country unable to retaliate in the event of a nuclear attack.
• Secret Service agents discovered that former president Bill Clinton has a blond mistress—code-named Energizer by agents—who lives near the Clintons’ home in Chappaqua, New York.
• The Secret Service covered up the fact that President Ronald Reagan’s White House staff overruled the agency to let unscreened spectators get close to Reagan as he left the Washington Hilton, allowing John W. Hinckley Jr. to shoot the president.
• Because Hillary Clinton is so nasty to agents, being assigned to her protective detail is considered a form of punishment and the worst assignment in the Secret Service.

“Kessler’s such a skilled storyteller, you almost forget this is dead-serious nonfiction.”—Newsweek

    Kessler writes like he is positioning himself for president for a potential USSS Union.
  • Terrific look inside the world of a Secret Service Agent!

    I found this book to be a real "page turner" with such a wide variety of information about the Secret Service and much, much more. The author puts you, the reader, right in the midst of fascinating circumstances covering the entire spectrum of the profession. I came away feeling almost as if I had experienced the lifestyle myself. I recommend this to both male and female readers as either sex would gravitate to such an "inside look" at the lives of so many important people. Truly an enjoyable book that I could scarcely put down!
  • how is he still president ?

    how come people don't take this seriously? these quotes in the book are from real people, the author doesn't just make things up. the truth is hard to read, trust me I know.
  • Read the one stars!

    Dead on. Reads as though the author wrote 57642 paragraphs, with several duplicated, threw them in a hat, pulled them out at random and glued them to a page. No readability, duplicate stories throughout, jumping from one subject to the next with no direction. Empty, boring read. I will not buy this author again.

    "I'll just rehash everything in my first book and everyone will buy it all over again" Ridiculous

    What a rip off!!! If I could get my money back I certainly would! If you purchased "In the Presidents Secret Service" you do not need to purchase this book! It's the same book with a different title! Nothing new here!!! Boo Ron Kessler!!!
  • Poor Copy and Paste Job

    This book is a rip off. It required no more skill to write than a second grader who can highlight, copy and paste from another text. I emailed the author and got no response, of course. Save your money. This is a waste.

    This book reads as if it were written by a child. Full of gossip, and boring gossip at that! Waste of time and money.

    I read this book in 2 days because I could not put it down. It really opened my eyes to the true character of these politicians that we elect into office. It will DEFINITELY make me think before I cast my vote next presidential election!!

    I feel like I just re-read kessler's inside the secret service book again - I swear certain passages were copied-and-pasted. Huge disappointment.
