Skull and Bones, Freemasons, Bohemian Grove, the Jonathan Club—you always hear that this or that is the world’s most exclusive club. This one really is: former U.S. presidents, whether they liked each other or not, are bound together by the Oval Office. And now, a new tell-all book reveals the secrets of the Presidents Club, like how John F. Kennedy disliked Dwight Eisenhower, and how Jerry Ford and Jimmy Carter feuded and made up. From Hoover and Truman to Obama and Bush 1 and 2, the backroom deals, secret alliances, and bitter rivalries among America’s current and former presidents have helped shape U.S. politics and history.
