Very interesting -- I learned a lot about the presidents I knew nothing about and more about the presidents I thought I knew well.

Felzenberg evaluated our former leaders in 6 different categories: character; vision; competence; economic policy (timely for today's standards); preserving & extending liberty; and defense, national security & foreign policy. We had one president who scored fives (highest score) across the board, but you'll have to read the book to find out who scored best and who scored not so well in each of these categories.

An analysis is provided of some of the best and worst in each category and there is a table at the very end that ranks the presidents in order by score and shows what score each president received in each category.

The last chapter in the book provides the reader with some questions that should be asked when selecting a president and an explanation of each question.
