"Assuming the presidency under the direst of circumstances, Gerald Ford demanded honesty and openness in his administration. Attend an impromptu press conference on the lawn of Ford's Alexandria home just prior to taking the oath of office; join the president at Camp David for a first-ever televised tour of the presidential retreat the FDR had first named "Shangri-La"; and listen in on biographer James Cannon's previously unaired conversations with Ford as he discusses the decisions and events that helped restore the nation’s confidence in government and its president."

--Richard Norton Smith
