POTUS and Me: Reading my way through presidential history

Back in May 2016, I picked up Ron Chernow’s book Alexander Hamilton shortly after the fiftieth time listening to the cast recording of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton. Something inside me just clicked and I fell in love with biographies with an emphasis on American and political history. I realized though that I really had little to no knowledge of large segments of history. So I set out on a personal journey to learn more about US history by reading a biography for each of the 44 men (and hopefully soon, some women!) who have risen to the highest office in the land. The books I’ve read to date are below. I will update the list as I continue my way through history and will also try to go back and provide details on each at some point. If you too are a fan of history and biographies and have a recommendation, please leave a comment.
