Following his previous 'Don't Know Much About' bestselling releases, Kenneth Davis turns his attention to what is arguably the most important and most fascinating subject in American history: their presidents. From the heated debates over executive powers when those framers improvised the office in the steamy summer of 1787 though the curious election of George Washington in 1789, up through the meteoric rise of Barack Obama, the first African-American commander in chief, the presidency has been at the heart of American history.
