Xvi, 451 pages ; 22 cm. From the story of George Washington chopping down the cherry tree to Bill Clinton winging a speech to Congress, from Abraham Lincoln's homely tales to Ronald Reagan's one-liners. From the story of George Washington chopping down the cherry tree to Bill Clinton winging a speech to Congress, from Abraham Lincoln's homely tales to Ronald Reagan's one-liners, Presidential Anecdotes contains an abundance of stories about America's presidents. Arranged chronologically, the stories are based on passages appearing in autobiographies, letters, journals, and reminiscences of the presidents and their families, friends, and associates. Beyond their wisdom, skill, and statesmanship, presidents are also famous for their tendency to show off horrendous manners, procrastinate on world affairs, say nonsensical things, and get into wild scandals. Clearly, being onstage all the time has its challenges and nothing proves it better than these delightful anecdotes, abridged from the critically acclaimed compendium by Oxford University.
