Sarah Vowell is a kindred spirit. We both love random facts. And her's just happen to have a bit of a more morbid tone because of her obsession with President assassinations. I learned more about the lives of both the assassinated and their assassin than I ever knew before. As a history buff I think anyone interested in the morbid side of American Presidential History will enjoy this book. The book is clever and witty and shows how issues that faced these men are still relevant today.
