Recommended for: History nuts and Politicos, and anyone interested in very detailed portraits of lives.
Read in January, 2009

With the elections coming up, I think it is important for everyone to take a good look at what a presidency is all about. This book was particularily interesting to me, because the author is so detail-oriented, you really get a perfect sense of where this man came from, and how he came to be the leader of the free world at that time.

We have to remember that the people in the history books were once just 'real men', with flaws, dreams, and families. Sometimes it's not all policy and hogwash; Sometimes, it's just integrity, experience and good common sense. Look for the candidate who will act with character in an 'unforseeable' circumstance, do not lay votes upon present-day platforms. We never know what the future holds...
