Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This little book is an amusing little diversion into the world of the life of the president. In short little bursts, the author answers vexing questions -- everything from making life and death decisions in the Situation Room to ordering take out food. Some of the information in the book is likely accurate; some of it is also clearly meant as a joke.There are other serious books about the day to day aspects of presidential life. But for amusement, none top this tongue-in-cheek overview.
