*Praise for the first edition: "A robust, entertaining, collection."--Publishers Weekly "This is a more than sound refresher in American history: It is a...delightful account of how lucky this country has been in its Presidents."--Los Angeles Times Book Review "An immensely entertaining collection of bonbons of White House humor. What's most eye-opening is not the wit of presidents--few have been known for that--but that the stories reveal so much about their characters."--Chicago Sun-Times "Entertaining and effortlessly, unassumingly informing."--Kirkus Reviews "This fat volume is a choice repository of revealing anecdotes....This is the perfect bedside book."--John Barkham Reviews "The material Boller has culled is fascinating even when the Presidents are not."--Time "Boller does a terrific job of humanizing the men who held the nation's highest office."--American Library Association "Unusual and entertaining....This collection is fine for browsing but even better to read straight through from start to finish."--Associated Press "[A] stylish smorgasbord of anecdotes."--Newsweek "A book of stories about American presidents that is as delightful as a box of crackerjacks....Boller has an uncanny instinct for finding stories that are fresh, offbeat, revealing and very funny--in short, all the stories that you should have heard in your college history course but didn't."--Dallas Morning News "Fascinating and highly readable."--Fort Worth Star-Telegram "Delightful, readable, and pleasantly light-hearted."--Library Journal
