5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting memoirs., 23 Jun. 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Confessions of a White House Ghostwriter: Five Presidents and Other Political Adventures (Hardcover)
The author, "lawyer, legislator, diplomat, author,
historian, actor, professor, and White House
speechwriter", recipient of the Order of the
British Empire and dance-partner with Queen
Elizabeth, seems to have been everywhere and met
everyone, most notably the several U.S. Presidents for who whom
he wrote speeches.

Humes' chatty narrative style, marred only by a
few regrettable typos, painlessly shares some
remarkable insights into high politics and
diplomacy, with such highlights as; Nixon's
candidate for "Deep Throat", and the real reason
Ford pardoned Nixon.

Not incidentally, Humes is today a professional
speaker whose tips on public speaking would be
well worth the price of admission here to anyone
who speaks publicly.

Very entertaining.
