Covers the material

The book hit the high points of the presidency at about a seventh grade level. It got the job done, if nothing more. But the performance was painful. Numerous mispronounced words..such as banks being concerned about rates of "intent" rather than "interest"...were distracting and embarrassing. At least once, the narrator made an error, paused, and started the sentence over. The entire book was read in a monotone. I was sad.

Don’t appreciate the bias in the modern presidents

Too much bias. Just wanted the history. Disappointing. Obama was great. Bush was bad. Selective memory.

Disappointing!!!

Horrible. Taylor omits Wilson’s Spanish flu debacle, Kennedy’s Addison’s disease and drug addiction to mention a few. Wayman can’t pronounce Noriega or “Vietmanese”. What a waste of my time. This is the crap we’re teaching 7-8th graders...

Informative and Satisfying

I was looking for a book to give me just a little bit of information about each and every US President. I didn't want too much about each guy but I did want something about each guy just so I'd feel familiar with past leaders of the country I call home. This book fulfilled my desires by spending about 15 minutes on each president. Just enough to know his biggest accomplishments, the way the times were when he was a leader, an interesting tidbit or 2 about his life before and after the office, and maybe some insight into his philosophy of politics. A few criticisms would be that the actual performance of the book was below the normal standard. There were several misreadings, mispronunciations, and instances where the same sentence was read and then read again. The content of the book was for the most part quite objective but there seemed to be some bias against those who sought to reduce the size of government and in favor of those guys who spent lots and lots of other people's money. The chapters on Obama and Trump definitely seemed rushed and inconsistent with the rest of the book. Overall this was a fine book and I'm glad I went through it.

Not boring.

A rare book and it’s fascinating to listen to for sheer entertainment. It also doesn’t sound bland and boring contrary to what I think at first when I got this book.

4 for this.

It’s quite good but I prefer presentations with illustrations. However, this audio book is especially convenient to those who are always on the run. I am giving it a 4, though.

It has its own style that appeals to readers.

This new volume is an entrancing read and superb reference for understudies and adults everything being equal. I was able to reminisce the former president’s achievements through this audio manual. It isn’t the usual book we have on the market.

4 out fo 5.

Although I want some pictures to go with it, this one’s not bad itself. Listening to K.C. Wayman is nice.

The facts are illuminating!

Worth-it information concerning the Presidents' lives, foundations, and terms in office, just as data about the workplace itself.

I appreciate it well and good.

I like that this book likewise makes reference to the lesser known presidents. Any perusers who like to find out about the presidents, may appreciate this very much done book like I did.

I will be on the lookout for more work of the same author. It’s one of the many audio books that left a good impression on me.

Everything is in here.

It very much spread out and bring back recollections of the days when you were really shown something in school. From George Washington to Donald Trump, everything is in here.
