Excellent read. Hoover was a key advisor of Wilson's at the Paris Peace Talks. Very important book given that we're living the results of so many of the decisions made in Paris. This conference, ending WWI, is the one in which the western European countries carved up the Middle Eastern countries to what they are today...and created much of the mess the we're living through. Hoover tells some of the background story. ( )

This is the only book that I'm aware of that is a biography of one president by another. You think your job is tough? Take a look at the before and after shots of Wilson on the cover!

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0943875412, Paperback)

"Hoover's book was meant as a tribute to his former chief, but is ti easy to suspect that anger and hurt might underlie a portrayal that presents the worst as well as the best in one of our greatest statesmen. What makes Hoover's memoir especially valuable to readers already familiar with the story are matters of tone and interpretation which Hoover himself... probably did not notice that he was making available." -- David Burner, "The Atlantic"

"Woodrow Wilson Center Press."
