“Murder, adultery, gambling, UFOs and the White House?”
Cormac O’Brien delivers outrageous trivia in Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents, which features profiles on every American president to date. Updated and rereleased by Quirk Books this week, the book covers everything from John Quincy Adams’ skinny-dipping escapades to Jimmy Carter’s UFO sighting.
Each profile also includes illustrations by Eugene Smith, and you can view a collection of the art in the gallery. Click here to learn more about the book.
