I'm a presidential history dork, and in that regard I really enjoyed reading this book. Wonderful factoids--my two favorites were LBJ's hippie hairstyle post-presidency and Hillary's initial hitting on Bill in the Yale School library--but the writing is so sloppy that it makes this book a lot harder to recommend. The anecdotes from one chapter/presidency bleed into the next. Word choice is sloppy.
It's a 4 star for information and 2-star for writing quality.
