First in line : presidents, vice presidents, and the pursuit of power

Brower, Kate Andersen2018
Books
Vice presidents occupy a unique and important position, living partway in the spotlight and part in the wings. Of the 47 vice presidents who have served the United States, 14 have become president; 8 of these have risen to the Oval Office because of a president's death or assassination, and one became president after his boss's resignation. In interviews with more than 200 people, including former vice presidents, their family members, and insiders and confidants of every president since Jimmy Carter, Kate Andersen Brower pulls back the curtain and reveals the sometimes cold, sometimes close, and always complicated relationship between our modern presidents and their vice presidents.
