Book Review: In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect by Ronald Kessler




Book
: In the President's Secret Service: Behind the Scenes with Agents in the Line of Fire and the Presidents They Protect by Ronald Kessler

About: Kessler gives a far-reaching look of the Secret Service by interviewing agents and management as well as touring department facilities.

Pros: Interesting, if true.

Cons: Unremarkable writing, repeats information, photographs bunched in middle, much of book is shallow dirt on Secret Service protectees,
if agents really did provide all of this information, they severely violated the tenets of the job, stupid chapter on how a psychic supposedly prevented an assassination, no citations or bibliography.

Grade: D
