Facts On File has revised the Presidents volume in its American Political Biographies set. Content has been updated through the November 2004 election.
The entries, arranged chronologically and including black-and-white portraits, chronologies, and references, are focused on policy but also reveal the characters of the men as well as their accomplishments and shortcomings in the political arena. An appendix provides tables that show each man's election results, administration, family data, and "Unusual Facts." The last category includes interesting tidbits, such as the fact that George Washington never had any wooden teeth but did have his horses' teeth brushed daily, and James Garfield entertained folks by writing Latin with one hand and Greek with the other.
The readability of this title makes it appealing as well as informative. Recommended for high-school, public, and undergraduate libraries. Sally Jane
