The Presidents Club: Inside the World's Most Exclusive Fraternity by Nancy Gibbs
The Presidents Club: Inside the World's Most Exclusive Fraternity

The Splintered Son, January 3, 2013

Taking an intimate and deeply personal look into the interactions between the sitting president and their living predecessors (covering from Hoover to Obama), The President's Club is a wonderful read that will educate and give the reader a glimpse into the human side of the presidency. The office as a whole is a cherished entity that goes far beyond party lines and loyalties. It is interesting to see the interpersonal relationships transform once the baton is handed on to the next president. The process of legacy building is complex and the book illustrates well how most all of the presidents unify for the common good of the office. You the gentle reader, can decide who has/had their own selfish agendas for the annals of history.

The President's Club may cause you to re-think and re-evaluate your opinions of the past leaders of this nation. It is written with a critical, yet respectful tone that keeps all things in a concise perspective. One will see that the work of the American President is really never finished. It is sadly ironic that the rest of the political machine can't unify for the greater good of the nation in the ways that the Presidents do and did.

My brief review does not do this awesome book justice. Do yourself a favour and pick up and absorb this book. It is time well spent.
