This is a much-needed book with a valuable message - one that reflects the author's unique personal perspective as well as his sound research. I hope it finds its audience in a timely fashion, and causes us all to do something about the out-of-control perks that have so clearly polluted the electoral process while needlessly wasting millions if not billions of taxpayer dollars. --Steven B. Chameides, Esq., Foley & Lardner LLP
Bob Gray has been a Washington powerhouse from Eisenhower to Obama, with longtime personal knowledge and experience from inside the White House and the Oval Office. He deftly leads the reader on a tour of the Royal Kingdom that has grown up around the American President. This is one of the most important books of this political season. A must read for all Americans. --The Hon. John Herrington, Reagan Secretary of Energy and former Chairman, Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich publishing company
For over fifty years, Bob Gray has been a keen observer of the White House and its inhabitants - both from the inside and from the outside. From his unique vantage point, in this astounding book, he has depicted the serious danger to America's constitutional government that emanates from the executive mansion. --The Hon. Edwin Meese III, former Attorney General of the United States

interesting and infuriating. I was almost afraid to read and find out tidbits like how the White House has been changed to
accomodate the current residents. I am angry to know that kids are allowed to disrespect places such as the Lincoln Bedroom - (jumping on the bed). One thing which really surprised me is the size of family quarters and that four floors are available. Many of
the ways money is spent to accomodate personal taste and whim is disgusting when those of us in the middle class who have
worked hard all our lives and had NOTHING given to us are struggling. Enlightening.
As Gorge Orwell in Animal Farm states, "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others"
Read and then decide on the action you would take.
But sadly that is just ONE of the problems confronting our country.
