The Role of Interest in Learning and Development

Synopsis

"From the padded expense accounts of George Washington to the memorable gaffes of Ronald Reagan, here is a rollicking account of the sins, slips, and peccadilloes of our chief executives. Sometimes irreverent, but never irrelevant, it chronicles the human aspects of two hundred years of presidential leadership: the trials and temptations suffered by the Founding Fathers and their successors, and the impact that their personal, medical, and sexual lives had upon the political scandals of each administration. Executive Privilege debunks myths surrounding former presidents while exposing moments of true courage during their darkest hours of power. Perhaps most importantly, our presidents are shown to be prisoners of their office and responsibilities to an extent that is rarely recognized. This is a rollercoaster ride over the bumpy landscape of presidential perks and privileges. The stories of the men and women who rose and fell along the way speak volumes to the Americans of today."
