Current Reading

I am currently reading The Presidents Club: Inside the World’s Most Exclusive Fraternity by Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy. So far it is a fantastic book. It has less to do with policy details and more to do with the personal details of the relationships between the presidents from Hoover to Obama. It’s an awesome read so far, and I would recommend it to anyone who is also a sucker for random facts about the men who have inhabited the White House. Unfortunately the only time the public really ever sees former presidents altogether is at one of their funerals (or at the opening of a library, if we’re lucky). This book is a great way to learn the details of the sometimes wonderful and sometimes strained relationships of the presidents.
