I have never been a history buff.
However, I recently picked up Ron Cherow’s biography on George Washington Washington: A Life and I have been loving it. Not only is his writing exquisite (really, it’s extraordinary), but the story of Washington’s life is fascinating, as well.
This has me interested in beginning a new endeavor: reading– in order– a biography on all 44 presidents.
However, as I have no background in this genre, I turn to you: do you have any presidential biographies you’d recommend as being the definitive work on any particular figure?
