Book Review: The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents by Ronald Kessler

I’m under the impression that not many young adults (peeps between 16-25 let’s say), read a lot of non-fiction. Especially political nonfiction.

But there are a handful that do, like myself, and that leads me to this review.

Even if you’re not all that interested in political history or stories, First Family Detail, even though it may be lacking somewhat in moral decency, is at least interesting in content.

Of course, anything with “reveal,” “hidden lives,” or “secrets” in the title is bound to be gossipy, though I believe there’s a very fine line between gossip writing and plain old stating unbiased facts.

First Family dangerously dances on that fine line.

It’s entertaining, but could easily have turned into a full-on literary political soap opera if the writer hadn’t been careful.

Final verdict: 3/5
