What a breath of fresh air about a very non public topic. Especially relevant in the political times we live in.
Well written

Very interesting with details we would not otherwise know. It provides the behind closed doors look at our presidents and first ladies. As well as vice-presidents and their family members. With an additional limited look into the lives of those who run for political office.

Exposing the under-staffing and short-funding poses the question why would taxpayers be funding massively expense vacations for wives and children of the presidents while the Secret Service is using antiquated weapons and overlooking recurrent training.

It's no wonder the resignations are so high. Those who hold the position have no life because they are always on duty. I have worked in a career where there is little time for sleep and the demands are high. It's horrible and until someone has been under those demands it is not possible to understand how it destroys your life and health.

As citizens we should stand up for better working conditions for this department and demand reduction in the turnover. Constantly hiring and training is costing us precious resources not only financially but in skills. The Secret Service needs massive changes in management.

Don't read this book if you want to retain much respect for our past presidents (sexual escapades) or our present Secret Service (whining about work schedules and promotion policies).
