“This wonderful book presents the collective wisdom of all our American presidents and is the perfect gift.”
—Matthew Litt, author, Christmas 1945

Meet the Author

Pierce Word was born and raised in Chicago, IL, and has been keenly interested in politics and history since an early age. His fascination with these social sciences eventually led him to a 2-year tour of Europe and the Middle East, where he furthered his studies in American and world history, as well as U.S. foreign policy, and where he taught U.S. History and English as a second language.

Pierce currently lives with his wife in his native Chicago, a city he describes as “a home of art, culture, and never-ending politics.”
