Wit and Wisdom from the Front Row at the White House
Table of Contents
About The Book
In a natural follow-up to her national bestseller Front Row at the White House, the dean of the White House press corps presents a vivid and personal chronicle of the American presidency. Currently a columnist for Hearst and a former White House bureau chief for UPI, Helen Thomas has covered an astounding nine presidential administrations -- from Kennedy through George W. Bush -- endearing herself with her trademark "Thank you, Mr. President" at the conclusion of White House press conferences. Here, in a riveting chapter for each administration she has covered, Thomas delights, informs, spins yarns, and offers opinions on the commanders in chief and their families. She tells about Kennedy's love of sparring with the press, the memorable invitation LBJ extended to Hubert Humphrey to become his running mate, and Reagan's down-home ways of avoiding the press's tougher questions. As entertaining and compelling as Helen Thomas herself, Thanks for the Memories, Mr. President is a unique glimpse into presidential history.

The Associated Press An engaging reminder of the kind of history that seldom makes the front page, or any page, of the newspaper. [Thanks for the Memories, Mr. President] recalls moments that still manage to tell us a great deal about the president, his time, and ourselves.
Sam Donaldson ABC News No one knows the White House like Helen Thomas. She leads the press pack, and believe me, we fall in right behind her. Here's the inside story on how presidents try to get away with things, only to discover Helen won't let them. Presidents come and go, but Helen Thomas goes on forever.
Chicago Tribune A rich collection of lighthearted, nostalgic stories...an easy, entertaining read.
