Product Description

From the Back Cover

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book." — President George Bush "It's great!" — President Gerald R. Ford JFK hid it from the public. Reagan practiced it on Air Force One. Bush did it in record time. Taft was surprisingly good at it despite his girth. Harding liked a nip before he did it, and scheduled his presidency around it. Passion for golf has infused the Oval Office over the past century. In fact, thirteen of our last sixteen presidents have devoted untold hours to the pursuit of the perfect swing. In Presidential Lies, little–known stories and facts reveal our chief executives' love of the game in a collection that combines history, gossip, and golf in a wonderful read. Shepherd Campbell is a vice president at Golf Digest/Tennis, Inc. Peter Landau, a longtime golfer and collector of golf literature, is the historian of the St. Andrew's Golf Club in Hastings–on–Hudson, New York.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best titles since "Atlas Shrugged"! 19 Jun 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
An enjoyable, enlightening read, Presidential Lies is great fun. It also makes a terrific gift for business contacts as well as that large body of people who are otherwise impossible to buy for. The book weaves its way through a picaresque landscape of 20th century American history and the game loved by many, but mastered by few. It's nice to learn how much we have in common with so many Presidents...
