Book summary

The 2008 Presidential election is almost here and that can only mean one thing: our days are about to get a lot more entertaining. Beyond their wisdom, skill, and statesmanship, presidents are also famous for their tendency to show off horrendous manners, procrastinate on world affairs, say nonsensical things, and get into wild scandals. Clearly, being onstage all the time has its challenges and nothing proves it better than these delightful anecdotes, abridged from the critically acclaimed compendium by Oxford University Press. Including public and insider stories from 41 presidents, all the way from George Washington to Bill Clinton, its an amusing reminder that it takes a lot more than grace-after-gaffe to be a great leader.
