America's many presidents, both famous and obscure, have been as varied as the history of the country they have ruled. Over two centuries the presidential seat has been occupied by soldiers and school teachers, judges and journalists, haberdashers, Hollywood actors, professors, postmasters and even, believe it or not, a peanut farmer. Each had their own strengths and weaknesses, some perhaps with more of one than the other, but all were influential in shaping the history of this unique and influential nation.
In this fun and informative book, Jem Duducu introduces us to the famous, the infamous, the unknown and the occasionally unfortunate men who have led a country from its early years as a colony fighting for independence, through to it becoming the most powerful nation in the world.
