This book is really good if you want to know about the men that have run our country! They don't go into soooo much detail that it bogs it down! You learn many things that you didn't in school! Great book!

Have read so much on the history of the men that have held the title and office of President, so was not expecting anything new. Still like to read about these historical characters. Simple read. Good for a extra credit in school and do an overall summary report.
