Lives of the Presidents: Fame, Shame (and What the Neighbors Thought)

by Kathleen Krull, Kathryn Hewitt

The president of the United States has always been in the public eye—but do we know these men as well as we think we do? What were they like as fathers, husbands, and neighbors? What did they do for fun, what were their favorite foods, and how did they take care of their hair? Lives of the Presidents looks at bad habits, silly nicknames, and strange pets, examining the high points, low points, and times in between of each president.

  • About the Book
    Every U.S. president is the focus of public scrutiny, but how well do we know these men? What kind of fathers do presidents make? Husbands? Neighbors? Other books focus on the historical achievements of those who have occupied our country's highest office; Lives of the Presidents looks instead at their bad habits, silly nicknames, and strange pets. Every president—from George Washington to Barack Obama—is included, with an emphasis on those who have had the greatest impact on history. Discover their high points, low points, and the times in between. In this stunning addition to their acclaimed series, Kathleen Krull and Kathryn Hewitt take us beyond politics and photo opportunities, revealing the entertaining, complex, and very real lives of the presidents.
