A multi-million dollar post-presidency book deal hasn’t always been the norm for an ex-President.  Believe it or not, there was a time when who-wrote-what didn’t really matter – it was more about the importance of the document and ultimately the effect it had on advancing the nation.  But times have certainly changed, and so has the appetite to know who-said-what-where-when!  The surprising history of presidential autobiographies from The White House and beyond is on this episode of American POTUS!
