Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents

Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents: Strange Stories and Shocking Trivia from Inside the White House features outrageous and uncensored profiles of our commanders in chief. The book is complete with hundreds of little-known, politically incorrect, and downright crazy facts. You’ll discover (among other things) 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, and Jimmy Carter reported a UFO sighting in Georgia.

With chapters on everyone from George Washington to Donald Trump, Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents tackles all the tough questions that other history books are afraid to ask. American history was never this much fun in school!

Cormac O’Brien is the author of Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents and Secret Lives of the Civil War. He lives and writes in New Jersey.
