The First Family Detail Ronald Kessler Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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.

From seeing reckless behavior that threatens the country’s safety, to overhearing First Lady Michelle Obama’s admonitions to the president, to watching their own agency take risks that could result in an assassination, Secret Service agents know a hidden world that Ronald Kessler exposes in The First Family Detail.

  • Another perspective

    By Ford Johnson
    It seems that some people don't realize how books containing compiled, interview based information, work. You copy and paste researched and interviewed text. Some info will seem familiar if you've read his previous books, but some info will seem new. If it's seems gossipy, that's because it is intended to be so. You don't exactly hear these kind of stories on the mainstream, info-filtering media. I'm wondering how many readers are simply upset that their beloved, pedestal-residing presidents and families were actually horrible people. While the ones that came off looking good, are not exactly the most retrospectively popular presidents.

    Kessler writes like he is positioning himself for president for a potential USSS Union.
  • Terrific look inside the world of a Secret Service Agent!

    By Winslow1997
    I found this book to be a real "page turner" with such a wide variety of information about the Secret Service and much, much more. The author puts you, the reader, right in the midst of fascinating circumstances covering the entire spectrum of the profession. I came away feeling almost as if I had experienced the lifestyle myself. I recommend this to both male and female readers as either sex would gravitate to such an "inside look" at the lives of so many important people. Truly an enjoyable book that I could scarcely put down!
  • how is he still president ?

    By FedWay
    how come people don't take this seriously? these quotes in the book are from real people, the author doesn't just make things up. the truth is hard to read, trust me I know.
  • Read the one stars!

    By Finnianlad
    Dead on. Reads as though the author wrote 57642 paragraphs, with several duplicated, threw them in a hat, pulled them out at random and glued them to a page. No readability, duplicate stories throughout, jumping from one subject to the next with no direction. Empty, boring read. I will not buy this author again.
  • Rehash

    By mhitewatt
    "I'll just rehash everything in my first book and everyone will buy it all over again" Ridiculous
  • The First Family Detail

    By beachbucks
    What a rip off!!! If I could get my money back I certainly would! If you purchased "In the Presidents Secret Service" you do not need to purchase this book! It's the same book with a different title! Nothing new here!!! Boo Ron Kessler!!!
  • Poor Copy and Paste Job

    By Tim in Tennessee
    This book is a rip off. It required no more skill to write than a second grader who can highlight, copy and paste from another text. I emailed the author and got no response, of course. Save your money. This is a waste.
  • Childish

    By Llg58
    This book reads as if it were written by a child. Full of gossip, and boring gossip at that! Waste of time and money.

    I read this book in 2 days because I could not put it down. It really opened my eyes to the true character of these politicians that we elect into office. It will DEFINITELY make me think before I cast my vote next presidential election!!
