In the final year of Donald Trump's Presidency, author Kate Andersen Brower looked into the lives and legacy of the members of what she termed the world's most exclusive fraternity, i.e., the ex-President's Club. Members of this exclusive club at the time she was writing the book were Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, with Donald Trump soon to join the group.

In TEAM OF FIVE, Kate Andersen Brower describes what comes after the presidency, offering a glimpse into the complex relationships of these five former presidents, and how each of these men views his place in a nation that has been upended by the Oval Office’s then current, norm-breaking occupant, President Donald Trump.

Brower researched and interviewed these ex-Presidents, and spoke to the spouces, children, and White House staff among others. Surprises described include the unlikely friendship between George W. Bush and Michelle Obama, as well as the description of the last private visits Bill Clinton and Barack Obama shared with George H.W. Bush.

Brower noted the everybody seemed to love George H.W. Bush, and the living ex-presidents spoke very highly of him. They also developed a friendship for the second Bush President (George W. Bush). She talks about Clinton and his foibles, and describes how Carter was a little harder to get along with than the others. She also notes that Obama's legacy is still to be defined, and expects that Trump, the least Presidential of all, is likely to leave a legacy quite different from the others in the Team of Five. All in all, her insights into the Presidents and First Families maked for some very interesting reading.

Wonderful review, chock filled with facts, of the relationships not only among the last five Presidents, but also going back further in history. And of course, it included the relationships that Trump has had with them. Actually, he hasn't had any relationships with them because he thinks he doesn't need advice, mentoring, or counsel. But Trump aside it is nice to see the past men in this office having reached across and become good friends. No relationship is perfect, but I found this book interesting in that the main focus is on those Presidents that have served in my adult life. ( )

It would have been a stronger book (imho) if Brower had not tried to tie it to Trump. He does not yet belong to the club and conjecture of how he will behave once he does is pure speculation. Plus, he is in the news aplenty, already.

It was nice to learn new "stuff" about the Bushes (41 & 43). Nice to hear a bit more about Carter. Obama, it appeared, is simply too new to have made much history post-White House. Clinton? I can only suppose he has done little outside of Bush 41's shadow. I can't help but suppose that Brower doesn't care for him. ( )
