All the Presidents' Children, the first book in the series, was an account of the triumph and tragedy in the lives of the first families. It was an instant New York Times best-seller and went through three printings in its first month and reached number one at


An author, humanitarian, and philanthropist, Mr. Wead has written 27 books that have sold 5 million copies in 30 languages. As a corporate speaker, he has spoken to audiences in coliseums and soccer stadiums on four continents.


During the early 1988 George Bush presidential campaign, Wead reported to son, George W. Bush and served as a liaison to constituent groups.  He was Deputy Director of voter coalitions and later served as Special Assistant to the President in the Bush Senior, White House.  Time magazine referred to him as "the man who coined the phrase the compassionate conservative in 1982."


In conjunction with the release of All the President's Children, Mr. Wead was interviewed by Matt Lauer on The Today Show, Connie Chung on CNN, Debra Norville on MSNBC and has appeared on The O'Reilly Factor.  Notably, he was interviewed by Dan Rather on the first night of the Gulf War. [For a detailed bio, go to Wikipedia.] [more...]
