Bottom line: an enjoyable light read that takes you dancing through the sordid side of the history of famous people.
If you have been reading dark or boring books in the History genre, this is one of those books that might be classified as a dirty little secret. If you are concerned about impressing your friends, family or acquaintances with your choice in literature or reading materials don't worry.no one is going to be impressed. Overall this might be subtitled 'ripped straight from the tabloids" and rightfully so. A lot of what is reported between the covers of this book probably have been lifted from the tabloids and are recent in nature.
While not particularly detailed, the basics are provided and are adequately lurid to get things going. From Thomas Jefferson's dalliances with Sally Hemmings to Bill Clinton's womanizing there js something for everyone.
I really liked this book as it made me laugh a lot and gave me food for thought as to why supposedly smart people do sone really ridiculous things. This is the ultimate beach read.
