7. The ‘I want to sound smart at parties so I read nonfiction’ book
“Ike and Dick: Portrait of a Political Marriage” by Jeffrey Frank, 2013
Jeffrey Frank penned this nonfiction work that chronicles the political and private relationship between presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Richard Nixon. The pair shared a bond that lasted nearly 20 years and survived fights and slights, both large and small. Frank does a tactful job of bringing out the intelligence of both men never before explored. Reading this will definitely give you something good to talk to someone about at a party.
