In the 20 stories of 20 different U.S. presidents in this book, we learn that our country’s leaders are not so different from us. They, too, were once kids with ordinary problems. They struggled with schoolwork, bickered with siblings, and angered their parents. Dwight Eisenhower dealt with bullies. Bill Clinton struggled with his weight. Barack Obama moved to Indonesia with his mother when he was just a boy, and had to get used to a new culture.
David Stabler tells interesting stories with an injection of humor. He tells the unfamiliar stories of our nation’s leaders, uncovering the jazz stars, lifesavers, and goose-tamers among our presidents.
You don’t have to be a fan of history to pick up this book. Those who enjoy reading about overcoming struggles, but still enjoy a good belly laugh, would like this book. Of course, if you hope to become a future leader of the world, I suggest you read this book cover to cover.
On a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being best), how would you rate this book?
