First off loooove the front cover it couldn't have been better if it was posed & beamed to JD years later an iconic choice John Dickerson takes us through the history and evolution of the Executive Branch from the original blueprint to current day complexities and how it's morphed thru the decades Excellent and thought provoking analysis kudos to John for all the hard work that went into researching and writing this book Know the feeling when you're into a book and it brings you back into remembering decades growing up recalling memories of the events of the era eventually you know you're going to finish it and want This is it so smart and insightful and non partisan of course which is very refreshing these days Highly recommended and a welcome read Anecdotes from former White House staff and historians shed light on events you knew about but didn't know the real backstory on it's a trip If you love history this is a great addition to your bookshelf If you're a fan of John's other superb books Whistlestop and On Her Trail or an aficionado of historical biographies American History and current events you will definitely enjoy it I'd like to give it seven stars

Listeners to The Political Gabfest will already be aware of John Dickerson's extensive knowledge of the presidency and ability to communicate the historical context of the presidency in an accessible and very human wayThis excellent read has given me a far better understanding of the Presidency and the evolution of the office as well as highlighting the human challenges in having the most difficult job in the worldI cannot recommend this book enough especially during an election year and a time when the US Presidency has such a clear impact on our lives and news in Europe
