I give this book high marks, as it provides details about President Garfield that I've not seen in print before. It's clear that a great deal of research was done by author, Margaret Leech, prior to her death. There are dozens and dozens of end-notes.

The ten chapters are: 1. Eliza (Garfield's mother), 2. The Eclectic Institute (now Hiram College), 3. Lucretia (Garfield's spouse), 4. Williamstown (home of Williams College), 5. Rebecca (a lady friend of Garfield's), 6. Transition (from college life to political life), 7. The War: 1862, 8. The War: 1863, 9. Congress, 10: The Presidency.

One of the two Epilogues contains "A Selection of Letters of James A. Garfield." This added value to the book.

There is a helpful index. I acquired this book on the used book market. ( )
