I thought the book was a disappointment. Not what I was expecting. Watch the movie!

I loved Eugene Allen's story. It is worth taking this out for that. It only comprises about half the book though. The other half was, to me, the self-serving story of how this man's story was produced into a Hollywood spectacle. I haven't seen the film and don't want to; I am not interested in what Oprah Winfrey or anyone else thinks of the movie-making process. I would have loved to learn more about Mr. Allen.

The movie that was made based on this book related the story well. I actually seen the movie first but wanted to read the book to see if the movie told the story correctly.

If you’re looking for a traditional birth-to-present biography of Eugene Allen, you’re going to want to keep looking. Ditto if you were hoping for an in-depth “behind the scenes” glimpse of what life in the White House was like during different presidencies. This seems to a compilation of various “fly on the wall” moments of varying aspects of Allen’s life, presidencies, the making of the movie, and cinematographic history.
