Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Modern-day presidential candidates are subjected to unprecedented scrutiny, and Uncle John is right there alongside other zealous investigators digging up the most compelling, confounding, entertaining, and unique information, facts, and figures about our nation's chief executives. This book is full of interesting insights, amazing anecdotes, and trashy tidbits about the lives, times, and issues of each president. Topics include: The Men — Their Personalities, Performance, Virtues, and Vices; Presidential Firsts and Lasts; Sibling Rivalry — Presidential Brothers and Sisters in the News; Health Secrets of the Chief Executives; Close Calls — Assassination Attempts; The Presidency as Depicted in Books, Movies, the Media, and Monuments; and much more. Readers learn about the oldest sitting president (Reagan at 77); the tiniest president (5'4" James Madison, who weighed less than 100 pounds); and the special status of 1841 (the only year when three separate men all served as president).

Synopsis:

Offering fascinating peeks into the world's past, short, medium, and long essays make this bathroom reader ideal for short visits or lingering stays.
