Great history

This is another great listen for anyone interested in presidental history. Each review is not too long but you feel you still get a great deal of history about each man.

Good History: Lame Politics

The writing and narration are very good. The occasional transparent jabs at the Bush Administration are a bit strange for historical works, but, the writers are myopic journalists and not historians. It is still a good listen.
