Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 034536273X, Paperback)This fun compendium presents the highlights and lowlights from the careers of our Chief Executives. Presidents are actually human beings under the mutton-chop whiskers and behind the bulging waistcoats. Barbara Holland offers anecdotes both endearing and appalling to etch these leaders into our memories. Did you know...? ? Franklin Pierce, "the hero of many a well-fought battle," frequently fell off his horse. ? Thomas Jefferson invented the pedometer, the dumbwaiter, the lazy Susan, and the swivel chair, and also introduced brussels sprouts to America. ? Theodore Roosevelt put prospective Cabinet members and new ambassadors through a challenging physical fitness test and obstacle course, which he designed himself.
