The part of this book that I wanted to read.
I had read last year then lost all interest in the rest of the story.
I really only wanted to know about the Marilyn Monroe encounter.

We all get it.

Really made me look at the man behind the President differently. This was a very raw look at the 35th president. This just goes to show that everyone has their secrets and demons.
