Format: Paperback
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!

More About the Author

Nigel Cawthorne is the author of over a 160 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.
