While I don't blame the author for U.S. Grant's boring presidency I do blame him for telling it in such a yawnworthy way. While in depth about the presidency it felt like an ice pick going into my ocular socket. Great early life through presidential election boring afterwords though. Narrator was good but editing was horrible......maybe audible should have a editing rating i have heard some crazy things on some audiobooks.

Robert E. Lee fought for the perpetuation of human bondage; U.S. Grant occasionally drank alcohol. If you think these things balance themselves out, this is the book for you! You'll hear more about alleged unsubstantiated benders than you will about the Battle of Shiloh. There will also be cringe-worthy attempts at pseudo psychology to impugn General Grant's ability and motives in every chapter. Apparently all you had to do to win a Pulitzer Prize three decades ago was write a scholarly sounding hatchet job that you self declare as balanced in your own epilogue. It was a very disappointing book.
