The President of the United States is an office that attracts men of all character. From George Washington to Barack Obama, the office has been held by farmers, scholars, veterans, and lawyers from all regions of the United States. The American Presidency For Beginners tells a concise history of the actions and consequences of all 44 presidents. The evolution of the presidency—from the weak curator of Congress to becoming the titan of policy, both domestic and foreign—is highlighted in 10 sections. The American Presidency For Beginners is a must read for those who find the position of commander in chief compelling and who want to learn more about the eclectic personalities that have led the US.

Justin Slaughter Doty is an aspiring American historian, firefighter, paramedic, and a longtime associate of For Beginners. He studied American history at Wheaton College and has been teaching the subject at the Brookfield Learning Center in Connecticut for three years. Justin currently lives in Danbury, Connecticut with his 15 year old Beagle named Rocky.
