He takes readers into the heart of loyalties and estrangements, and the emotional pressures that politics brings to bear upon the forty White House families, from their arrivals to their notices to vacate. Readers will enjoy an unprecedented tour of the previously unseen private rooms as used and decorated by each family.

Theyll get a firsthand look at the preparations for White House weddings and other occasions; meet the parents and children of the presidents -- as well as eccentric relatives; and discover the patterns of working, resting, and relaxing that shaped the nuts and bolts of family life.A magnificent combination of visual delights and insider information,Americas First Familiesis an irresistible invitation to spend some time at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
