Publisher Description

The New York Times bestselling history of the private relationships among the last thirteen presidents—the partnerships, private deals, rescue missions, and rivalries of those select men who served as commander in chief.

The Presidents Club, established at Dwight Eisenhower’s inauguration by Harry Truman and Herbert Hoover, is a complicated place: its members are bound forever by the experience of the Oval Office and yet are eternal rivals for history’s favor. Among their secrets: How Jack Kennedy tried to blame Ike for the Bay of Pigs. How Ike quietly helped Reagan win his first race in 1966. How Richard Nixon conspired with Lyndon Johnson to get elected and then betrayed him. How Jerry Ford and Jimmy Carter turned a deep enmity into an alliance. The unspoken pact between a father and son named Bush. And the roots of the rivalry between Clinton and Barack Obama.

Time magazine editors and presidential historians Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy offer a new and revealing lens on the American presidency, exploring the club as a hidden instrument of power that has changed the course of history.

True Leadership

A must read for those who understand leadership or wish to understand leadership, critical thinking and emotional intelligence.

Finally a must read for those who tragically think linearly as the book will show you how wrong you are!

Couldn’t put it down.

Nancy and Michael have done a masterful job at weaving the chronology of events with the personal and formal relations between our Presidents.
Well done and thanks for the fun read, I literally could not put it down and now my wife is afflicted as well.

The Presidents Club

Loved this book. I wish we still had politicians like the ones in these pages. God bless those presidents. They truly cared about our nation. Republican or Democrat they worked toward a common goal, the preservation of a wonderful democracy.
