An extraordinary yet almost unknown chapter in American history is revealed in this extensively researched expose. On July 1, 1893, President Grover Cleveland boarded a friend s yacht and was not heard from for five days. During that time, a team of doctors removed a cancerous tumor from the president s palate along with much of his upper jaw. When an enterprising reporter named E. J. Edwards exposed the secret operation, Cleveland denied it and Edwards was consequently dismissed as a disgrace to journalism. Twenty-four years later, one of the president s doctors finally revealed the incredible truth, but many Americans simply would not believe it. After all, Grover Cleveland s political career was built upon honesty his most memorable quote was Tell the truth so it was nearly impossible to believe he was involved in such a brazen cover-up. This is the first full account of the disappearance of Grover Cleveland during that summer more than a century ago."

Review:

""The President Is a Sick Man" is a lively, cautionary tale--and one with a lesson for leaders that recalls Cleveland's own words of wisdom: Tell the truth." --"The Wall Street Journal"

"Algeo is a determined researcher and fine stylist, and the story of presidential illness serves as an effective connecting thread through a somewhat broader account of the United States during the hard economic times of the 1890s. A memorable lesson in how journalists can dig out the truths beneath official lies." --"Kirkus Reviews"

"In seemingly effortless prose, Matthew Algeo tells the intricate story of one of the most unusual operations in American history. . . . Delightfully entertaining and informative." --Mary Cappello, author of "Swallow: Foreign Bodies, Their Ingestion, Inspiration and the Curious Doctor Who Extracted Them"

"Riveting and engrossing as the best detective novel, "The President Is a Sick Man" is an exceedingly well-documented and overdue account of one of the great presidential cover-ups of all time." --James McGrath Morris, author of "Pulitzer: A Life in Politics, Print, and Power"

"[A] brilliantly written historical perspective . . . . Readers will be fascinated by this must read for anyone interested in presidential medical history." --Dr. Connie Mariano, White House Doctor (1992-2001), author of "The White House Doctor"""

"Recommended for those who enjoy popular presidential histories and biographies, the history of U.S. newspaper reporting, and popular medical nonfiction." --"Library Journal"

"One of the best non-fiction books of 2011." --PopMatters.com

"A lively, cautionary tale--and one with a lesson for leaders that recalls Cleveland's own words of wisdom: Tell the truth." --"Wall Street Journal"

"[A] breezy, enjoyable book." --"Washington"" Post"

"[A] breezy, enjoyable book." "Washington"" Post""
