One of the worst, most obviously biased, books I've come across. Not recommended.

Author made convincing case that corrupt institution is broken despite idealistic newbies thanks to empire building higher ups . Former presidents escaped assassination attempts due to luck than training.
Dire warning Secret Service must be reformed & morale restored (305th out of 305 in government organizations )or current & future presidents will repeat history like Lincoln & Garfield.

Like his first book, this is just another "Me, Myself and I" boring waste of time. From the title one would expect the author to at least be a special agent with the Secret Service, but no, his claim to fame is being one of the uniformed guards at the White House. If the author has any talent at all, it would be the art of exaggeration.
