Decline of the U.S. Presidency chronicles the hidden truth of former president William Jefferson Clinton’s legacy. Political consultant John G. Anagnos presents a disturbing account in this bold book.
In the book, three main parts are covered: life before becoming president, Clinton’s presidency and his legacy. Hillary Rodham Clinton also appears in many parts of the account. While the former president’s time in office and departure will always be tied to his infamous affair, there are many dark hidden truths that many are still unaware of. Decline of the U.S. Presidency reveals many of Clinton’s affairs and his pattern of sexual abuse. It also provides details linking him to a drug operating operation and deaths that can be described as assassinations. The book reveals a man obsessed by his legacy who compromised the country’s safety for his selfish gain.
I liked that the author provides a list of references that aid further research. The book contains some shocking details, and therefore it is essential that the information included be backed by other sources. In between the text, other sources are also quoted. Not only does the list of references provide a guide for further reading, but also the sources add authenticity to the author’s words and point of view.
The book is also thoroughly edited. I found only one error. The organization of different sections is adeptly done and includes clear chapters that explore one topic at a time. This made reading seamless. It also ensured that I remained absorbed while reading the book.
I also appreciated the development of the story which provides a background of the former president’s life even before getting into office. The book includes his ascent to power, and key figures who played a role in helping him become the forty-second president of the U.S. Anagnos includes some perturbing patterns that began way before Clinton’s political career.
Reading about Hillary Rodham Clinton’s role in her husband’s career was eye-opening. Some themes stood out which gained my attention. This includes the Clintons’ greed for power and their continuous need to eliminate anyone and anything that stood in their way as they held on to power.
The title was misleading. Without the subtitle, the title gives the impression that what is included in the book refers to the U.S. Presidency in general and not a specific president’s tenure and legacy.
Readers who are fans of political biographies will find Decline of the U.S. Presidency by John G. Anagnos a sure treat while readers who avoid shocking accounts with political themes may not enjoy this book. I found it thrilling, shocking and eye-opening all at once. I rate the book 4 out of 4 stars.
