This one's a conundrum. Kelter sure is an expert when it comes to our vice presidents-wow, will readers learn a lot here!-but he's also a smart aleck, fond of wordplay and humor that verge on the sophomoric and can be crude (including the index). Although the VPs are handled chronologically, there are no internally consistent subheadings or boxed data to make this ready reference. Nevertheless, the book is recommended with appreciation of Kelter's deep knowledge (he gives his print and online sources) and of Shellabarger's pen-and-ink portraits of each VP, marvelously evocative of 19th-century copperplates. For public libraries.
