Booknote: How to Be President

Williams, Stephen P. How to Be President: What to Do and Where to Go Once You are in Office. San Francisco: Chronicle Books, 2004. ISBN: 0-8118-4316-5.

This little book is a guide to the daily life and routines of the U.S. President. Want to know who does your laundry? This book will tell you, and it will remind you to pay your bill at the end of the month. I had no idea the President was responsible for paying for the laundry service. However, there are a good number of free perks he or she gets. Find out why many Presidents usually keep the same barber as the predecessor even though they can get their hair done by anyone they want. From how to behave in a formal state dinner to taking a vacation away from it all, this little book will tell you what you need to know for when you make it the White House. Overall, it's a nice little book, written in a casual format with many little sections, FAQ's, etc. It is interesting and very entertaining way to learn about how the President works and lives.
