4-0 out of 5 stars time for kids Presidents of the United States
When I got this book, I flipped to the end and president Obama was not there. He should be in there.

5-0 out of 5 stars very educational
I bought this as a present for an 11 year old boy.
He truly loves it and likes all the facts about the presidents.
Don't expect too much tough its not a big book just a magazine size one with great facts for kids who like to learn!

1-0 out of 5 stars Beware of the Bias
I bought this book for my 8 year old grandson, but I am returning it.I wanted him to be informed, not endoctrinated.I.e., "Reagan thought that if the rich spent more money, it would 'trickle down" and help all levels of the economy, so he lowered taxes on the wealthy."Reagan's tax cuts were for ALL levels of income and brought about an era of prosperity that lasted until the policies of the Clinton administration brought it down in 1999.And, "The President (Clinton) ...worked to improve health care in the U.S.The U.S. is the only modern nation in the world that doesn't provide health care for all of its citizens."Some would say this is a GOOD THING.Also says, Clinton was not found guilty of "illegal charges."He lost his law license because he lied under oath and was found guilty.And, on and on.Don't buy it.Teach your kids the truth.

5-0 out of 5 stars Presidents book
I bought this book for my 8 year old grandson for Christmas.My daughter reported to me that this book was a huge hit with him.He has not put it down yet.He is continually reading about the Presidents and sharing what he reads with his family.His school has assigned a report on a President for President's day and he is so excited about writing it now that he has this resource.The design of the book is very well done--one page per president with color pictures of the president and a short bio and facts.He can read this book himself and does so before bedtime.My daughter said it was a super selection.

1-0 out of 5 stars Is Beschloss a Qualified Presidential Historian?
Consider the following 2008 dialogue about Barack Obama between Beschloss and radio host Don Imus:

Beschloss: Yeah. Even aside from the fact of electing the first African American President and whatever one's partisan views this is a guy whose IQ is off the charts -- I mean you cannot say that he is anything but a very serious and capable leader and -- you know -- You and I have talked about this for years....

Imus: Well. What is his IQ?

Beschloss: Our system doesn't allow those people to become President, those people meaning people that smart and that capable....

Imus: What is his IQ?

Beschloss: Pardon?

Imus: What is his IQ?

Beschloss: Uh.....I would say it's probably - he's probably the smartest guy ever to become President.

(And by the way, you cannot find a single recording of this interview anywhere on the Internet anymore...which is certainly because of Bechloss' embarrassment...) ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Brainwashing at its best.
I don't own the book I just picked it up to peek at when in a book store. I read only four paragraphs from this book and was disgusted. If you want your kids to grow up in a world of reality and not make believe then please don't buy this for them. The first paragraph I read was the author telling us about some civil rights that we have to include the right to vote, the right to a free education and the right to live wherever you want. Now if anyone believes that then I want you to go find the US Constitution with the Bill of Rights and look hard for those rights somewhere in those documents. You won't find them. If the author didn't do any research into basic American rights how much research do you think the author did on Obama's life? Probably none. This book is about brainwashing our children. Enough said.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice bio for kids
This biography is written so that older children would be able to read it.It has a lot of pictures, so it would be good for read alouds too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for kids about Obama's life!
This is just the book I was looking for! Many of my 3rd graders are interested in learning more about Barak Obama and his life, so I was on a search to find an appropriate book for my classroom. After researching several books, this one was the obvious winner!It's actually an interesting book for anyone of any age to read (as another reviewer stated), but it's what I'd consider to be a "just right" book for students in grades 2-4. The content if easy for kids to comprehend, and the independent reading level seems to target this age group.
Glad I found this book - my children keep passing it on to others instead of putting it back in our classroom library tubs!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Learning Adventure Built Around an Inspiring Story!
When I picked up "Barack Obama" I thought it was written for adults.Wrong - it's for young readers.Nonetheless, I couldn't help reading it.

Ms. Edwards begins with campaign photos, along with words that explain the meaning of his name, his parents background (eg. meeting in Hawaii, father left when Barack was two and didn't return until he was ten, and then only for a month), how Barack wrote his father in Kenya after they separated again, moving to Indonesia and being taught to box by his stepfather after a bully took Barack's soccer ball.

"Barack Obama" then tells how he was sent to Hawaii because his mother wanted a better schooling and lower crime environment (stayed with his grandparents), graduated from Columbia, and was a Chicago-area community worker for three years.(Also included his relatively benign reaction towards a white girl that wouldn't date him.)

Barack saw problems while working in the community, and wanted to help.Thus, off to Harvard Law where he did very well.Then back to Chicago.Unfortunately, his parents died before he became U.S. Senator.

February, 2007 Barack announced he was running for president - a race that he eventually won by more than 8 million votes.Again, misfortune struck - his beloved grandmother died just two days before the election.

I enjoyed the photos, drawings, and narration, and imagine a young reader would be inspired by Barack Obama's story.

4-0 out of 5 stars good, but did not arrive with supplement
I've only read portions of the book so far, and I'm sure to enjoy the rest with my interest in both temperament and American history.But I wanted to note that when I recently ordered this, Amazon neglected to ship the supplement with newer presidents.The book itself goes only up to George Bush, Sr.

5-0 out of 5 stars No such thing as a scientific work without some mistakes
I love this book, and while it many have numerous mistakes as stated by other reviewers (wrong dates, pictures swapped...) overall the work is insightful and an interesting read.All papers have mistakes, and finding them in a specific work is a favorite assignment that is given in graduate level courses.

4-0 out of 5 stars Even Einstein Made A Mistake Now and Again...
David Keirsey's work in refining MBTI is phenomenal and should be much, much more extensively used in the education system, as it already is and has been in the business world (where efficiency and practicality actually matter, unlike education) for decades now.
Of this book, which again was mostly fascinating intellectual meat, I must beg to differ about Keirsey regarding Ronald Reagan's type. I also find it amusing that even geniuses like Keirsey can occasionally "blow one"--even when they are alive to witness the direct observation. Now, concerning Reagan, and concerning Keirsey's assertion that no idealists have ever been president, Keirsey has indeed finally made a gaff.
You see, folks; you see, Mr. Keirsey, it's like this:
RONALD REAGAN WAS AN ENFP!!!
YOU DON'T ALLUDE TO UFO'S a total of 18 TIMES DURING YOUR PRESIDENCY, as REAGAN did, AND YOU DON'T FOCUS ON FUTURE-ORIENTED, BIG-PICTURE DEFENSE SYSTEMS LIKE 'STAR WARS,' as REAGAN did, UNLESS YOU ARE AN INTUITIVE!

Keirsey's got Reagan as an ESFP--what he's probably seeing is an ENFP that was raised by Sensor parents (this would account for a higher percentage of Sensor-like everyday quotes from Reagan, which is mainly what Keirsey is basing his mistaken identification on). The more I look at Type, the more I see that parents play a huge role in how we later act, often altering our basic Type to something like a "sub-Type", but they don't determine or change our overall Type/Temperament, to be sure.

David--Mr. Keirsey--it's okay to admit you made a mistake. You are such an intellectual giant, and have done so much incredible work, and I am such a HUGE fan of yours. It's okay. Hell, even Einstein made mistakes, right?

5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, but have a few notes
Loved the combination of psychology and history.If you find both interesting, you should definitely get this book.And you can contact the publisher to get an update that includes Bill Clinton.Other errors not mentioned by the previous reviewers include that the pictures for W.H. Harrison and J. Buchanan are actually swapped, that it has W.H. Harrison born in 1793 and married in 1775 and that John Quincy Adams's middle name is once spelled "Qunicy".Another curious thing:it appears that the book was written as if the presidents were to be discussed in chronological order, then later changed to group them by types. I think the latter was a better idea, but some references were leftwhich seem to indicate the prior ordering.Then there is the question of the typing of the presidents.Both Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter seem different enough from others in their groups that it's interesting to wonder whether they are really correctly typed. Do we really understand Johnson well enough?After all, he is the man who everyone is suprised to learn once uttered: "Two things are necessary to keep one's wife happy. First, let her think she is having her way. And second, let her have it."Then there is Martin Van Buren, who many on the web consider an Idealist INFJ.Even based on just the evidence presented in this book, it seems like it might be the case. His admiration of Jefferson, the fact that diplomacy was his best talent, his lack of charisma (compare to Jackson) and his tendency to work behind-the-scenes all seem to point this way. In addition, I don't think it's necessary to see Van Buren's efforts to avoid dividing the Union over slavery so cynically. Perhaps because he is married to one, Author Keirsey seems to idealize the Idealists out of proportion. They are 12% of the population, but to read him it seems that every single one has goals as earth-shattering as Gandhi's.Does this tally with your experience?Perhaps it's the lack of information about this president that leads to this misinterpretation. But don't Idealists have the tendency to be very private people?I hope it's not just the case that saying "No Idealist has ever been president." sounds more dramatic and marketable on the book cover.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, but filled with historical errors...
As someone who loves US history, politics, and psychology, I've always been fascinated by books which try to "psychoanalyze" Presidents and historical figures. Two books which have done this are Dr. James David Barber's "Presidential Character" and William Strauss and Neil Howe's "Generations", which looks at US history throught the prism of four generational types, which repeat themselves in cycles (they argue that the Baby Boomers are the descendants of the Puritans!). And this book, "Presidential Temperament", uses a system which should be familiar to many readers. The book's authors use the well-known Myers-Briggs Type Indicator to "type" each of our Presidents. Many businesses and schools use the Myers-Briggs test, but for those who are not familiar with the system, it tests people on four different sets of preferences (Extrovert-Introvert, Sensing-Intuition, Thinking-Feeling, and Judging-Perceiving). Thus, there is an "ISTJ" type (quiet, reserved, methodical, thorough, practical, etc.); an "ESFP" type (outgoing, "touchy-feely", compassionate, idealistic, spontaneous, etc.), and so on. The test is not supposed to be used to judge or rate other people, as every type is useful and necessary to make our society function. In "Presidential Temperament" the Myers-Briggs test is applied to all of our Presidents since Washington. The authors use biography and history books to examine the childhoods, personalities, leadership styles, successes and failures of the Presidents to place them into one of three Myers-Briggs types: Artisans, Guardians, and Rationals (a fourth type, the Idealists, have never had a US President, according to the authors. Instead, leaders such as Gandhi and Eleanor Roosevelt fall into this category). The Artisans are the "SP" types - fun-loving, optimistic, tough-minded, and above all, action-oriented. They love the "action" part of politics - they live in the "here-and-now" and are great at dealing with crises. Among the Presidents in this category are both Roosevelts, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and Bill Clinton. The "Guardian" types are the "SJ"s - they are tradition-oriented, generally honest and reliable, addicted to duty and "law-and-order". They are the good managers and administrators who keep things running smoothly, but they dislike change. According to the authors, George Washington, Woodrow Wilson, Harry Truman, and the first George Bush all fall into this category. The final category are the "Rationals" - they are "NT"s on the Myers-Briggs scale. They are the visionaries and strategists - they can marshall great forces to accomplish great things, but can be undermined by their distaste for showing emotion and "people skills" in public. They are extremely intelligent, but can come across as arrogant or aloof. Thomas Jefferson, both Adamses, Abraham Lincoln, and Dwight Eisenhower are all Rationals, according to the book. After "typing" each President, the authors then show how their temperament type affected their Presidency - Jefferson the Rationalist designing the University of Virginia and envisioning a continent-size United States, hence the Lousiana Purchase; Franklin Roosevelt the Artisan "Performer" dealing with the twin crises of the Great Depression and World War Two, etc. This is all truly fascinating, even if you don't always agree with the author's claims. However, the book is severely hampered by the numerous factual errors that I found. For example, in the chapter on Bill Clinton they listed his birthday as August 19, 1947 (it is actually August 19, 1946), and then laterin the same chapter gave his birthdate as August 14, 1946. John Quincy Adams' birthday is given as July 11, 1967 (he was born in 1767), and Eisenhower's birthday is listed as October 14, 1880 (he was born in 1890). Woodrow Wilson is listed as having lived in Atlanta during the Civil War, but he actually lived in Augusta, not Atlanta. The chapter on William Henry Harrison even has an incorrect photograph - it has a large photo of James Buchanan labeled as Harrison! While these errors may seem insignificant by themselves, taken together (and there are numerous other inaccuracies, from presidential birthdays to biographical information) they cast some real doubt on the author's credibility and research. In short, while "Presidential Temperament" is a fascinating "psychological" look at our Chief Executives, the many historical errors left me wondering just how much "research" and editing the authors put into their arguments - and that overall makes the book something of a disappointment. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Presidents illustrate American history
I have a first edition copy of this book, and even though I am now WAY out of the targeted age range, I still love it.

Instead of assuming that her (primarily) young readers would not be interested in historical facts, Provensen's excellent lyrics and drawings remind us that the presidents had faced difficult issues during their administrations. How those presidents dealt with them (or not) is what ultimately gives us history.

This updated version includes both a new entry for George H.W. Bush and an all-new entry for the administration of William Jefferson Clinton. I really like the 'Berlin wall graffiti' theme used for Bush's completed term, but was not crazy about the 'quilt' illustration used for Clinton.

The Buck Stops Here is an essential purchase whether you have young children, teach young children, or just want to see another perspective on this country's great history.

Here, for the first time, an entire work is devoted tothe interactions between those who have held the most powerfulelective office in the land and the relatively small but politicallyand socially active Jewish community. From Theodore Roosevelt'shistoric 1906 appointment of Oscar Straus as secretary of commerce andlabor to Bill Clinton's equally significant 1997 selection of MadelineAlbright as secretary of state, this groundbreaking volume presentsfascinating biographical information on major Jewish appointees toCabinet and sub-Cabinet positions, to the Supreme Court, as well as toambassadorships throughout the world.

Written in a popular style for the lay reader, The Presidents of theUnited States and the Jews will inform, inspire, and occasionallyamuse. Most important, however, it will add new perspective to the wayin which we view those who have served as leader of the Westernworld. Generously illustrated with black-and-white photographs.

Product Description
The Economic Report of the President for 2010 is written by the Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers. An important vehicle for presenting the Administration's domestic and international economic policies, it provides an overview of the nation's economic progress with text and extensive data appendices.For more than sixty years, the Economic Report has provided a nearly contemporaneous record of how Administrations have interpreted economic developments, the motivation for policy actions, and the results of those interventions.This year's volume has attempted to stay true to this proud legacy.It provides a detailed economic history of the first year of the Obama Administration.It examines the economic challenges that we face as a Nation, the many policy actions that have already been taken to address these challenges, and the President's proposals for further action.The economic challenges facing the Nation when President Obama took office were among the greatest in our history.Last January, the American economy was truly in freefall.Real GDP was falling at an annual rate of more than 6 percent and the U.S. economy was losing jobs at the devastating rate of almost 800,000 per month. Our financial markets, having narrowly avoided collapse in the financial panic of the early fall of 2008, were paralyzed with fear, and borrowers of all sorts, from households to small businesses to large corporations, were having trouble accessing the credit necessary for normal economic activity.The threat of a second Great Depression was both genuine and terrifying. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Everyone should read.
Contains a lot the typical B/S you would expect in politics.Lots of contradictive wants and needs, (such as, the 3 year freeze on spending while increasing citizen benefit spending.) Gives a better insight to the president's plans, better than any news source will (ie MSNBC or Fox News.)A must read for any American who actually cares about what is going on with our nation.Just be prepared, as with any politics, to use your brain shovel because the b/s is waste deep.

2-0 out of 5 stars Well written, BUT...
It's a very long read and extremely well documented, BUT as I was reading the 10 chapters I kept thinking of a college course I took in 1977 entitled "How to Lie with Statistics".The authors of this document could have written this college course as well.Just because it reads as believable doesn't make it so.The majority of the proposals will accelerate the budget deficits, not control them.The cap and trade proposals with their foundation in the need to control CO2 emissions is particularly troubling as are the health care proposals.The other chapters are full of more Big Government controlling more and more of our lives.No Thanks.

5-0 out of 5 stars a sweeping economic agenda
With the release of the annual Economic Report of the President, the Obama administration laid out a sweeping economic agenda that includes overhauling health care, restructuring financial regulation and dealing with long-term budget deficits. But the backdrop for all those initiatives is an economy that, if the administration's forecast is correct, will be functioning well below its potential for years to come.

President Obama's first official economic report to Congress predicts lackluster employment growth this year and next, even after including the impact of a jobs bill whose prospects appeared uncertain in the Senate.

The report predicts the U.S. unemployment rate would average 10% for this year, would drop to 8.2% by 2012, and remain at levels higher than 6% until 2015.
The report also say the U.S. gross domestic product would increase by 3% in 2010, then rise to 4.3% in both 2011 and 2012 before slipping slightly to 4.2% in 2013 and dropping down to 3.4% by 2015.

The Economic Report of the President should be a must read read for every educated U.S. citizen, every year. The report provides a wealth of information about our nation's economic activity.

What a great service. I love having access to a document like this that I likely would never have sought on my own.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Nice Summary Of Harrison
After reading biographies of the first eight U.S. Presidents via the "American Presidents" series, I was disappointed that they didn't have an installment regarding the ninth, William Henry Harrison, despite his very short stay in office.

Thus, I decided to give this series a try before returning to "American Presidents" with John Tyler.Though this book is written at about the level of a seventh grade textbook, it actually does a very nice job of recapping the crucial events of Harrison's life and times, which is exactly what I was looking for on my quest to study up on every U.S. President.

About the only thing that disappointed me is that I wish more information would have been included about Harrison's short stay in the White House.That information is literally relegated to the final page of the book.

All in all, though, this is a nice, simple little biography of Harrison that can be gotten through in under an hour. ... Read more
