Inspired by the once-ever fact that Super Bowl XLIV was played during the administration of the forty-fourth president, sports writer Steinberg pits each chief executive from George Washington on against the correspondingly numbered football championship. Along with handfuls of quick facts about years of service, political party, electoral votes, and the like on one side, and final scores, season records, and cost of a 30-second TV commercial on the other, he stacks a short tally of each administration’s successes and failures up against highlights and general quality of the paired gridiron conflict—then picks a winner. Based on vague criteria and arbitrary choices, he awards the presidents an early lead, but the overall “scoring” remains suspensefully close throughout. Readers who don’t know their QBs from their DBs will be lost by the author’s game summaries, the football photos are often only marginally relevant to the great plays being described, and the whole premise is ridiculous anyway—but, as Steinberg writes, “It’s the most fun you can have learning about America’s presidents and Super Bowls without having to read two separate books.” Grades 4-6. --John Peters
