There was a time when books with U.S. presidential facts were formatted chronologically by President, which allowed readers to render their own lists of trivial and less trivial information based on their own study. Next, these books started to offer some fun lists in the back ("Presidents resident of a state other than that of their birth," etc.). This book skips the President-by-President rendition altogether (aside from a desultory table up front) and simply supplies thematically arranged annotated lists. They're fun, but some buffs may prefer their presidential diet not to be predigested. Is it more enjoyable to discover yourself that one 20th-century President had no living predecesor when he took office-or to be told? For public libraries.
