"A quick read that provides rare insights into the White House offering unique views of the executive mansion from the perspective of the long serving staff that cares for the residence and the first family. This book covers a span from the Kennedy to the Obama administrations. While it provides limited insight into the private details and personalities of the various first families, it focuses mostly on the efforts and dedication of the staff to care for and protect the Presidents and their families. A great read! Definitely recommend!"
"It is possible only Rick Bragg could do true justice to The Killer, a man whose music an indelible aspect of the American cultural scene. Bragg's knowledge of the South enables him to provide the background of a region of incredible contradictions that spawned Jerry Lee Lewis and helped contribute to a musical revolution, which eventually swept the world. Lewis' own improbable life complements the story of a cultural phenomenon that helped to change society and is still relevant today."

"The author, a journalist for the Anchorage Daily News, has written a fascinating and most unusual account of The Pilgrim family - "Papa" Pilgrim, his wife and 15 children - which homesteaded to Alaska to an old mining outpost in 2002. This sounds like an adventure; however, it was anything but. His actions are bizarre, and under the guise of a pious Christian family, he manages to captivate the local townspeople and even the U.S. government. This is a spellbinding read, and I quote from one reviewer: "A Pilgrim who was no pilgrim." This is a true story that will keep you thinking for a long time to come."
