Since publication of his New York Times bestselling book In the President's Secret Service, award-winning investigative reporter Ronald Kessler has continued to penetrate the wall of secrecy that surrounds the U.S. Secret Service, breaking the story that Secret Service agents who were to protect President Obama hired prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia and revealing that the Secret Service allowed a third uninvited guest to crash a White House state dinner. Now in The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents, Kessler presents far bigger and more consequential stories that will make headlines about our nation's leaders and the agency sworn to protect them. Kessler widens his scope to include presidential candidates and former presidents after they leave the White House. In particular, he focuses on first ladies and their children and their relationships with the presidents.

Though the author is an award-winning investigative reports, this book is poorly organized and poorly written. It reads like a gossip column. Kessler has an obvious bias toward Republican presidents and against Democratic presidents. And he seems to have an agenda -- to portray Joe Biden and Hilary Clinton in the worst possible light. He has nothing positive to say about them. I kept wondering what the author had against these two people.
