Sex With Presidents.

A very interesting discussion on a delicate and sensitive topic. Author makes it clear that the most powerful people in the world succumbed to their hubris and indulged their passions in extra-marital affairs usually under the cover of press protection. It is shocking the manifest intrigues that have taken place in history that are now revealed by Eleanor Herman.
