I have just browsed through this book, but it looks really interesting. I will read it shortly as I'm reading another book right now. It's a behind the scenes of the first families and the few I've read have been informative and I enjoyed.

This is an interesting book-well written and easy to read. I was disappointed in the quality of the illustrations in the book, some were very difficult to make out, which is unfortunate because they appeared to have been carefully selected. I would definitely buy this book again in spite of that, and recommend it to anyone with an interest in American History,

Could not really get into this book. Story line is not what I expected. Book its-self was as described.

Short snapshots of the fist families and how time has changed the way the White House is perceived. Not too wordy and some great photo's. Alth ough not the size of a coffe table book, It is a book I will have out for others to pick up and read a chapter or two. Because of it's format you can easily jump around and read what intersts you at the moment.

This is a fascinating book. It is a wonderful compendium of trivia, probably not available in any other volume. It contains a wonderful assortment of pictures of First Families, some of which have never before been published. The book is well organized into chapters detailing various aspects of the Presidential families' lives and activities. for me, one of its prime attractions is that it does not include the politics or issues of the President's era.

At times, it is a little confusing, because the author skips from one family to another rather abruptly, so it requires a little getting used to in order to follow the narrative.

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the social and "human" aspects of the White House families.
Enjoyed reading this book, learning some interesting tidbits about our previous Presidents.
However, it is set up by subjects rather than names so it's a little hard to keep straight
the information about a given person or family. Still liked it, tho.
