Book Review: Gerald R. Ford (American Presidents Series)

May 24th, 2016 No comments

Kind of like his Presidency, this bio was short and to the point. I got in, got out and no one got hurt—with the added bonus that I didn’t have to wade through 1000+ pages to learn everything I needed to know about the only President that no one voted for. Most interesting to me was the cast of characters he surrounded himself with, men who would continue to haunt the halls of government for decades to come: George H.W. Bush as the Director of the CIA; Donald Rumsfeld as his White House Chief-of-Staff, then Secretary of Defense; and Dick Cheney as Chief-of-Staff. Washington D.C. is, indeed, a small town and our government an elite club.  (3 of 5 Stars)
