Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The life of William Taft is explored in this biography from the "Presidential Leaders" series. The introduction contains the amusing story of how Taft began the tradition of the seventh inning stretch at baseball games. Chapter one, "Son of a Judge," describes Taft's early life and his family's involvement with politics. Chapter two, "Yale Man," follows Taft's studies at Yale and Cincinnati Law School as well as his early law career and involvement with the Republican party. Chapter three, "Nellie," explains Taft and Nellie Herron's courtship and eventual marriage as well as Nellie's aspirations of becoming First Lady. Chapter four, "Judge Will," explores how Taft and Roosevelt became friends and political allies. Chapter five, "Governor of the Philippines," describes Taft's appointment in the Philippines and how he clashed with MacArthur as to how they should be governed. Chapter six, "The Politician," explains how Nellie and Theodore Roosevelt convinced Taft to run for president, even though Taft only wanted to be on the Supreme Court. Chapter seven, "The Reluctant President," highlights the major events of Taft's presidency, such as civil rights and tariffs. Chapter eight, "More White House Troubles," explains the scandals that plagued Taft's presidency and how his alliance with Roosevelt fell apart. Chapter nine, "Finally, the Supreme Court," describes Taft's final years as chief justice of the Supreme Court. This detailed biography truly gives a sense of the man who reluctantly became president. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 8 up.
