Editorial Reviews Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, April 2012: It's hard to imagine a more obviously fascinating prism through which to look at American history and politics since the end of World War II. Starting with the surprisingly effective relationship of Harry S. Truman and Herbert Hoover, and following through "Obama and His Club," TIME Magazine's Executive Editor Nancy Gibbs and Washington Bureau Chief Michael Duffy trace the surprising, complicated story of "the world's most exclusive fraternity." Sitting presidents and their predecessors have at times proved remarkably simpatico, at others impossible thorns in each other's sides. The authors' extensive research demonstrates that ex-Presidents have a penchant for morphing from consummate team players into irascible rogues, sometimes within weeks, as they strive both to remain relevant and to shape their own legacies. In Gibbs and Duffy's hands, their stories never fail to captivate. --Jason Kirk


"This is essential reading for anyone interested in American politics." --Robert Dallek, bestselling author of An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963
"Forget Rome's Curia, Yale's Skull and Bones and the Bilderbergs--theworld's most exclusive club never numbers more than six. Its rules areinscrutable, and its members box the compass politically andstylistically. . . . Michael Duffy and Nancy Gibbs have penetrated thick walls of secrecy and decorum to give us the most intimate, revealing,and poignant account of the constitutional fifth wheel that is theex-presidency. Readers are in for some major surprises, not to mention a history they won't be able to put down." --Richard Norton Smith, author of Patriarch: George Washington and the New American Nation

"Michael Duffy and Nancy Gibbs have taken us inside one of the mostpowerful and unusual families in American life--the brotherhood of former presidents of the United States. Political junkies, historians,psychologists and main street citizens will find the tales offriendship, envy, conspiracy, competition and common causeirresistible."
--Tom Brokaw, bestselling author of The Greatest Generation

"This is a brilliant idea for a book, wonderfully written! AtEisenhower's inauguration, Hoover and Truman half-jokingly decided toform a 'President's Club.' With surprising reporting and insights, thisbook reveals the relationships and rivalries among the few men who knowwhat it's like to be president. It gives a new angle on history byexploring the essence of the presidency."
--Walter Isaacson, bestselling author of Steve Jobs and Benjamin Franklin
