Prodigiously researched, well-written, and very informative! I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I learned a lot and I highly recommend it if you are a history buff or political junkie!

to me this was a tough read, and I generally like books about presidents and elections. a large majority of the book revolves around the Free Silver vs Gold Standard debate of the time. and if you don't understand and/or care about it, you'll lose interest.

This is an "I did not know that" book. Very easy to read. Informative as to the political customs of the time.
