    Libro pieno di aneddoti, episodi e fatti particolari accaduti ad alcuni dei presidenti degli Stati Uniti d'america......a me รจ piaciuto molto, per niente lento ne ripetitivo. Una piccola perla per chi ama la Storia e la formazione degli USA

    Fun read of random stories from the White House, from the poignant to the amusing. The stories are roughly grouped into three headings: Beginnings, Middles, and Ends. Plus at the back of the book there are quick bios/stories about the first ladies. Each story is short--just a couple of pages. A great book to just pick up and read for a couple of minutes at a time. I picked this book up at a used book store (2nd & Charles in Kennesaw, GA) and the bonus is that it's signed by the author.

    An interesting book though a little dry in places and sometimes they repeated what had been told in a story earlier. This is a great look at the inside of our presidents and their wives.

    I found it fascinating to learn little tidbits about the presidents of the United States- that are not so well-known. In the back there are stores about the first ladies as well- things we don't often hear- things that they did in helping their husbands the Presidents.

    I really loved this book, not just because I like history, but because it was well-written and entertaining. Some very interesting stories about out presidents are included, as well as some neat info about first ladies.
