A good thing so far as it goes, but gives the impression of a book written to order. Little more extended than ""Minute Biographies"" -- does emphasize the outstanding accomplishment of each president, and clarifies his views. Value to adolescents lies in the brevity that lessens its interest for adults, for whom, presumably, it is primarily intended. Brings order out of the chaos of the average man's chronology of history, and its value lies here rather than in its information. Limited sale -- other than ready reference book.
