The White House Doctor: Behind the Scenes with the Clinton and Bush Families - Connie Mariano, Bill Clinton I had such high hopes for this book when I first picked it up at a Borders. I wanted to know her story; I wanted to know about Dr Connie Mariano and how she got to be a Navy Doctor, what it was like in the military for her, and of course, her job serving President Bush and Clinton as White House Doctor.

Now, while I did get bits of the information i wanted, I had to read through self-aggrandizing and plainly just bad writing to get there. I kept on hoping it would improve but alas, I got to the end and it was just as bad.

Its a shame to ruin the bones of a good story like this. A bit of organization to get a more coherent picture in place and a much better writer would have done the trick.
