More About the Author

Nigel Cawthorne is the author of over a hundred books, from serious political works such as The Iron Cage to lightweight comic romps such as Sex Lives of the Popes. Sex Lives of the Presidents got him on the Joan Rivers Show. He was hauled in front of a Senate Select Committee for The Bamboo Cage. And "Read this book." was the last line of the Washington Post's review of his book Takin' Back My Name: The Confessions of Ike Turner. So there is plenty for everyone to enjoy.

I thought this might be a tabliod type expose, but to my delight, it really is a thorough, factual work. Each and every president is covered and the historic research is evident. Many sections are dry and boring only because those presidents weren't particularly sex driven men. But the notable exceptions like Lyndon "Bull Nuts" Johnson, Jack Kennedy and others make this an eye opening and shocking account of what our presidents really are doing behind closed doors. After reading this book, you want to give this country back to King George! 5 stars to Nigel for his tireless research and fact finding.

This gets the goods on all U.S. presidents from Washington to Carter. It stops before Clinton and hints that Buchanan was gay, and maybe even Lincoln had some contact with other men (he shared a bed with one friend for four years). It is written in an intriguing manner and is easy reading. . It leaves no doubt that Washington and Jefferson had sex with female slaves. The book is well documented and tells sexual incidents never covered in the biographies of all these great leaders of the United States. John T. D'Alessandro Ph.D. Philadelphia PA

This book is really detailed and the author keeps it casual so it's not a snooze-fest. The information is really detailed and you certainly learn a lot about the presidents and their characters. I'm not really a quick reader (a casual now-and-then reader is more my style) but I tore through this book because I couldn't put it down.

If you're really into history, gossip, and just being nosy, this is a great book!

Format: Paperback
In case anyone would say "Why are you reviewing this trash?" the answer is that this reviewer is a fan of all United States Presidents. Plenty of eliminations take place before someone becomes President of the United States. Even the worst had some good qualities. Now for the book. It's been out for a few years and it was read entirely back then. The newspapers and history books had already told us plenty about Bill Clinton, John Kennedy, Franklin Roosevelt, Warren Harding, Woodrow Wilson and Grover Cleveland. In this book nobody escapes scrutiny. Since all Presidents were married men with the exception of James Buchanan, how well they kept marriage vows is the subject of this book. James Buchanan was appartenly heartbroken over a relationship with a woman early in life and never managed to marry. Truman and some other Presidents come across well in the marriage virtue department. Is the book recommended for the average person to read? No. But it is difficult for fans of Presidents not to read it if they know about it. Presidents, regardless of difficult private lives, showed great leadership and courage when called for.

The book came when it said it would. I wish it wasn't so dirty looking but none the less I was glad I got it
