In the first book to consider these three presidents alone (Johnson, Nixon, and Clinton), and the one thing they have in common, Jeffrey Engel, Jon Meacham, Timothy Naftali, and Peter Baker explain that the basis and process of impeachment is more political than it is a legal verdict. The Constitution states that the president, "shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors," leaving room for historical precedent and the temperament of the time to weigh heavily on each case.

If you see a scholarly, well researched, and entertaining piece on Impeachment, this is your book. I had preconceived notions on the appropriate triggers for impeachment . Some of these notions were reinforced after reading the book, others were proven unwise. This is a very interesting (and quick) read on a timely topic. It deserves your attention.

The material presented was quite informative and helpful to anyone looking to become vegan and maintain a highly active lifestyle. The narrator's constant mispronunciations however, were a major distraction to the point where I couldn't focus on the positives. Examples include "KIN-owa" instead of "kin-WA" and "Cummin" instead of "Koo-min." As these are staple items in a vegan diet, it's surprising greater care was not taken to ensure proper pronunciation.
