    Honestly when I was younger I heard jokes and comments here and there about presidential scandals One of them was the infamous scandal involving Monica Lewinsky and President Bill Clinton I had always known the genaral details of this scandal but this book gives greater depth and insight into it Posner was able to write in a uniue and attention grabbing way Most of the book is written as though it were journalism Posner has an accurate and factual understanding of the events that took place and he is able to easily transfer this knowledge to the reader
