From Abigail "Nabby" Adams to Barbara and Jenna Bush, the children of America's presidents have both suffered and triumphed under the watchful eyes of their powerful fathers and the glare of the ever-changing public. Some writhed under the pressure; others used the privileges granted to them to achieve their own success. All, however, had to cope with the unique experience of sharing their fathers with the country and living a life worthy of history. Combining twenty years of study with never-before-published letters and personal accounts from presidential children, Doug Wead has produced a remarkable and authoritative analysis of the extraordinary people born to American presidents throughout history.

this is a pretty depressing book overall...the tragedy aspect is stressed quite a bit...could have skipped this one.
