I do not read political books. I have always loved history, however, so this book caught my eye. This is a new perspective for me on these eight presidents. I found the chapter on FDR especially interesting for me at this point of current history. FDR came to office with the major tasks of pulling the country out of the Great Depression and World War II coming like a freight train. Here we are 70+ years later with very similar tasks for President Obama.
