About First Friends: The Powerful, Unsung (and Unelected) People Who Shaped Our Presidents (Click here to purchase)

First Friends reveals the riveting histories of presidential friendships, among them Thomas Jefferson and James Madison; Abraham Lincoln and Joshua Speed; Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Daisy Suckley; Harry Truman and Eddie Jacobson; John Kennedy and David Ormsby-Gore; Bill Clinton and Vernon Jordan. Former Clinton aide Gary Ginsberg breaks new literary ground on Pennsylvania Avenue and provides fresh insights into the lives of the men who held the most powerful political office in the world by looking at the friends on whom they relied. First Friends is an engaging, serendipitous look into the lives of Commanders-in-Chief and how their presidencies were shaped by those they held most dear.
