"A must read for anyone interested in the presidential marriage. Recommended for a broad audience."--Presidential Studies Quarterly
"An absorbing book full of surprising and fascinating anecdotes."--Kirkus Reviews
"Deeply engrossing."--Publishers Weekly
"Thought provoking [and] convincing."--Library Journal
"A must read for anyone interested in serious discussion of the power and influence of presidential spouses. It removes these women from the roles associated with tea and china and places them in the larger context of White House turf battles and American ambivalence toward women and power. While I disagree with his conclusions, I have not read a more provocative, thoroughly researched, or readable account of these women. I recommend it without reservation."--Allida Black, author of Casting Her Own Shadow: Eleanor Roosevelt and the Shaping of Postwar Liberalism
"Hillary Clinton should read Troy's book. Anybody who wants to be First Lady should read it. Anyone married to a powerful person, or thinking about marrying a powerful person, should read it; in fact, everyone should. It's full of nuggets and insights about marriage, power, and the presidency. I loved it."--Lesley Stahl, CBS News

This book provides a few nuggets of information not generally reported and the author probably will not make you change your mind on which couple in modern times reflected your own point of view as to their service if you have already lived through these presidencies. Reading the book may, however, influence a younger generation as they prepare to vote. Does the marriage matter? Read this interesting book and decide!
