its always fun to learn things you did not know. This book is great. it is easy to read and tells you alot about our past and current presidents. It is just fun to learn new things . it makes these people in history seem real.. There is also a book Secret Lives of First Ladies.. I read it in conjunction with the presidents. They were great
I love books like this! Each segment is presented in a short easily read fashion. It's not a book you have to stay with to keep up with. You can pick it up a few times a day. Each time getting some fact that you hadn't heard before. There were lots of things that I didn't know. Stuff that maybe a presidential historian would put in a long biography but little quirks that make the history of American Presidents seem like real people. Including people who seem bewildered at the idea that they got to be president.

Interesting and amusing, fun to read if nothing else! There were a couple of stories that had me literally laughing out loud. There's a section about each president with some personal and political facts, a couple of pages with a biography of the president's personal as well as political life, and then a few pages of quirky facts and stories. Also includes special sections about presidential pets, first ladies, famous last words, etc.
