      Ask most anyone to name all 44 United State presidents, and the odds are good they’ll stall after a dozen or two. Which is totally understandable—between guys who were president for only a few weeks, toa few who were president twice non-consecutively, the numbering gets a little wonky (not to mention there are more than a few Presidents who are, honestly, forgettable).   The book is organized by rankings, with the top 10 presidents first, followed by "the men in the middle" and finally the bottom Each chapter is taken from an interview conducted by Brian Lamb, founder and executive chairman of C-SPAN, with an author who has written about each president.

    That’s Robert B. Semple Jr. in the Book Review, taking stock of Wills’s extraordinary portrait of Richard Nixon, published in , in the context of “a nation whose faith has been corrupted, whose youth knows it has been had, whose president is president only because he has been able to sell a sufficient number of equally deluded souls.   Since Presidents’ Day is coming, I decided to make a list of all of the books in the series that covered US Presidents. (See below.) It was a little disappointing to find only 11 of our 45 presidents have a book in the series, so far. Hopefully, more will be coming!

      He twice tweeted versions of a quote from Fox News host Lou Dobbs describing Trump himself as “arguably the greatest president in our history” and “Absolutely % the greatest President in history.” And he claimed that “My Admin has done more for the Black Community than any President since Abraham Lincoln.”. The President’s Book is intended as a framework for each chapter’s individual, personalized guidebook. New traditions, policies, projects, and other special chapter information should be carefully written and inserted at the end of the appropriate main section. Please hand this book to your successor after officer election and emphasize areas.

This was the first book on the Obama Presidency I have read and I am not sorry that I did. It is nice to know just how lousy a book can be. If you want a well written, intelligent book about the Obama Administration skip this one and wait until a more balanced book is written/5. Characterizing the American presidency—the task that this book has set for itself—is, as a result, very challenging.

We start by distinguishing the presidency from the presidents, the office from those who held it. This book is not, then, a collection of presidential biographies, although it provides much biographical information/5(15).

Review Review A professional book,” not only sold more thancopies but also propelled Reagan to the California governorship and the presidency. Most presidents’ books. His most recent book is “The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office.” He hosts a weekly podcast, “This Is Democracy.” J at AM EDT.

The book is about vice-presidents who ascended to the presidency upon the death of their running mate. That's four assassinations; four natural deaths. Despite the title, the book spends more time talking about the presidents who died than it does about those who took their place/5().

About Book Reviews. There are many thousands of books written about USA Presidents. According to there are ab books on Abraham Lincoln alone.

USAPresidents has taken on the mission to help narrow this down, not just for Lincoln, but for every president. By and large, The Lost Soul of the American Presidency did for me what any good book does—it taught me something new and prompted me to think things through a bit for myself.

The President's Book of Secrets: The Untold Story of Intelligence Briefingsto America's Presidents from Kennedy to Obamaby David PriessPublic Affairs, Author David Priess served as an intelligence officer in the Clinton and George W. Bush administrations, and in that capacity he often handled directly the subject of his new book, The President's Book of Secrets.

The Library of Congress lists more than 7, books on American presidents, but according to one librarian, there may be a quarter of a million more not in the library’s catalogs. The president hates Bolton and the book is damaging, so Trump wants it buried.

Squashing the publication on this basis would be a flagrant violation of the First Amendment. Lewis (The Undoing Project: A Friendship that Changed Our Minds,etc.) turns timely political reporting he published in Vanity Fair into a book about federal government bureaucracies during the first year of the Donald Trump first, the author’s curiosity about the relationship between individual citizens and massive federal agencies supported by taxpayer dollars did not.

A one-of-a-kind sourcebook of information on the Presidents and Presidency. There is, as you may have noticed, an election taking place inand it is starting to look interesting.

President Donald Trump has tweeted praise for nearly two dozen books shortly after watching their authors be interviewed on Fox, according to a Media Matters review. In her new book 'First in Line,' author Kate Andersen Brower looks at the men who've held the office of vice president.

A star review. Though his book is timely, the author insists that it is incorrect “to look at the timing of this book and assume it was inspired by all the impeachment talk surrounding Donald Trump.” Easily digestible political history and, Cohen’s protestations aside, interesting reading for those contemplating the prospect of a President Mike Pence.

The next book you selected was the first scholarly biography written about our seventh president, Andrew Jackson—and it was published just 15 years after his death.

Why did you choose this Life of Andrew Jackson by James Parton. Parton was the great American biographer of the 19th century, and Jackson was his first important biography. Reviews for 'The President Is Missing' by Bill Clinton and James Patterson are out and critics are divided between praise and pans.

While reviews from The New York Times herald the book as. "The American president was intended, at least in part, to serve as the nation's chief of state, as its symbolic head, not a partisan leader. An office envisioned by. For those of you wondering, the least popular presidents to search for (or read about) are George H.W.
