"A terrific book... Mike Purdy has a gift for discovering just the right anecdotes that help us understand our presidents better. Really well done." --PAUL BRANDUS, White House bureau chief, West Wing Reports, author of Under This Roof: The White House and Presidency

"Filthy, disgraced, lying, cheating, calculating bastard, schemer, a dangerous man, a little schmuck, unfit to serve... Mike Purdy brings us into the political locker room, where nothing is left unsaid. This book is a statement on the dark humanity of American presidents--sad and hilarious, at the same time." --A.J. BAIME, New York Times bestselling author of The Accidental President
"Anyone reading this book will have reactions of laughter, shock, and amazement as they learn more about the personalities of our 44 Presidents. This book is highly recommended to all who follow and love the institution of the American Presidency." --DR. RONALD L. FEINMAN, author of Assassinations, Threats, and the American Presidency
"Mike Purdy's track on 101 Presidential Insults reveals a side of presidential politics that is at once delightful and shocking." --THE HONORABLE DON BONKER, Former Member of Congress
"This book should be required reading for those concerned about the current political climate. Perhaps in knowing the past we can chart a new, more civil course. It's also great reading for those who enjoy a good laugh!" --DR. MICHAEL ARTIME, Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science, Pacific Lutheran University (Tacoma, WA)
"Mike Purdy's new book is an addictive and refreshing read for any lover of American history. A delightful concept--executed masterfully--it explores some of the most un-presidential moments of the American presidency." --ROBERT BUCCELLATO, author of Jimmy Carter in Plains: The President's Hometown
"The book is an eye opener." --DR. BILL BAARSMA, Former Mayor, City of Tacoma, Washington
