Ends with George W Bush still in office and I believe a longer passage of time mat modify the opinion of history on more recent presidents. I didn't realize desegregation started under Eisenhower and environmental regulation under Nixon so some surprising information.

Great snapshot to promote further reading on the most interesting presidents. Their backgrounds and paths to becoming president was entertaining and thought provoking.

This is one of two books of capsule biographies about the U.S. presidents I have read so far. For review see Don't Know Much About the American Presidents by Kenneth C. Davis.
