This is an easy to read book that makes America's "royalty" seem much more approachable. I loved picturing the Obamas spending their first night in the White House dancing to Mary J. Blige. I enjoyed reading the words of the various presidential children who grew up in the White House. I laughed while picturing Chief Usher Stephen Rochon searching the White House for Caroline Kennedy's lost hamster. In fact many stories put a smile on my face as I read Ms. Bower's description of lives so different than my own.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys following the lives of Presidents, their families and those who serve them. While Ms. Brower's book does not necessarily present us much new information, she writes well and paints a clear picture of events that happened over the last half century.
