Summary
  • "The acclaimed author of America's Obsessives provides a look into American history and the fathering styles of U.S. presidents,"--NoveList
  • Of the 43 men who have served in the nation's highest office, 38 have fathered biological children and the other five adopted children. Each president's parenting style reveals much about his beliefs as well as his psychological make-up. Kendall shows presidential character in action, and shows how the fathering experiences of our presidents have forever changed the course of American history
