In his New York Times
bestselling Don’t Know Much About® series, Kenneth C. Davis has made subjects from history to geography and the Bible accessible and enlightening to buffs and amateurs alike.
Now, he’s taking on the American presidents, from the low lights to the bright lights, the intellectuals to the disasters, from the memorable to the forgettable and forgotten. Davis uses his same entertaining question-and-answer style to chart the history of the presidency itself as well as debunk the myths surrounding America’s leaders and tell the real story, which is far more fascinating than the version you studied in school. You’ll learn about the young Abraham Lincoln, who carried his mother’s coffin, the tailor’s apprentice who became president, and how Theodore Roosevelt’s “Big Stick” once helped save college football. In this historic election year, this is a must-have for everybody who wants to brush up on American history and the men who have been at the nation’s helm.
With Don’t Know Much About the American Presidents
, Davis shows once more why People
magazine said, “Reading him is like returning to the classroom of the best teacher you ever had.”
