A rare and fascinating portrait of the American presidency from the number-one New York Times best-selling author of Mrs. Kennedy and Me and Five Days in November. Secret Service agent Clint Hill brings history intimately and vividly to life as he reflects on his 17 years protecting the most powerful office in the nation. Hill walked alongside Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon, and Gerald R. Ford, seeing them through a long, tumultuous era - the Cold War; the Cuban Missile Crisis; the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy; the Vietnam War; Watergate; and the resignations of Spiro Agnew and Richard M. Nixon. Some of his stunning, never-before-revealed anecdotes include: Eisenhower's reaction to Russian prime minister Khrushchev's refusal to talk following the U-2 incident The torture of watching himself in the Zapruder film in a Secret Service training Johnson's virtual imprisonment in the White House during violent anti-Vietnam protests His decision to place White House files under protection after a midnight phone call about Watergate The challenges of protecting Ford after he pardoned Nixon With a unique insider's perspective, Hill sheds new light on the characters and personalities of these five presidents, revealing their humanity in the face of grave decisions.

Must read

So much insight and information from Mr. Hill in this book. It is a well-narrated novel that I'd listen to again and again. The book remains fascinating from beginning to end.

How little we all know

A great story about 5 leaders and those who work tirelessly to ensure their safety and well being. I listened as an audiobook while recovering from surgery and was captivated and visualized almost every account. This is one of my top 20 books of all time.
