I really enjoyed this book. I have always had a love affair with anything presidential, so I enjoyed reading these letters from presidents to their daughters. It showed a personal side to these men that I found very endearing. I also liked the fact that the letters featured in the book weren't just from well-known presidents, but also the ones that aren't so well known, like William Howard Taft.

A very interesting insight into the personal, family lives of some of the most powerful, respected men in the world, and their daughters.

Very interesting to see the interchange between presidents and their daughters. Some presidents were fathers first, but some seemed to be remain presidents before fathers.

Even though it's explained why there aren't more letters from the daughters, I was disappointed at the number of letters included. But it's still an informative, interesting read.
