Since publication of his New York Times bestselling book In the President’s Secret Service, award-winning investigative reporter Ronald Kessler has continued to penetrate the wall of secrecy that surrounds the U.S. Secret Service, breaking the story that Secret Service agents who were to protect President Obama hired prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia and revealing that the Secret Service allowed a third uninvited guest to crash a White House state dinner.
Now in The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents, Kessler presents far bigger and more consequential stories that will make headlines about our nation’s leaders and the agency sworn to protect them. Kessler widens his scope to include presidential candidates and former presidents after they leave the White House. In particular, he focuses on first ladies and their children and their relationships with the presidents.
From seeing reckless behavior that threatens the country’s safety, to overhearing First Lady Michelle Obama’s admonitions to the president, to watching their own agency take risks that could result in an assassination, Secret Service agents know a hidden world that Ronald Kessler exposes in The First Family Detail.

Poor Copy and Paste Job
This book is a rip off. It required no more skill to write than a second grader who can highlight, copy and paste from another text. I emailed the author and got no response, of course. Save your money. This is a waste.
The writing in this book is nothing short of shameful. The author clearly didn't invest a fraction of the time that he had in his other book about the service. The blind quotes, the gossipy tone of the writing and the straight up factual errors made this a nearly impossible read.
I feel like I just re-read kessler's inside the secret service book again - I swear certain passages were copied-and-pasted. Huge disappointment.
