douglas brinkley has writtion a wonderful bio of president gerald r. ford. I was delighted to have found this historical book cause I have not really found alot about this great leader including his funeral that I could read. this new publication has alot of presidenial documents and research material that I found to be very fasinating that has not been shown before and this book also gives some rare coverage of the ford funeral and his legacy and there was so many things that I did not know about in not only that it is his life so this book is something that I really learned alot about president fords life. this is a very thin book so it is very fast reading and it is very inexpensive and would make a wonderful gift for someone special.
This book and the rest of the series are to historical research as Classic Comics are to Literature.
