    This book didn t inspire much admiration in President Chester Arthur, but it was interesting enough to readabout a president I knew nothing about Writing at times was a bit tangential but overall, ok Reads like a slightly interesting history paper.

  2. James Schneider says:

    I started this book very curious to learn about an obscure, lesser known president I finished it with the same sentiments.

  3. Tom Frankman says:

    It is extremely challenging to write a book about a historical figure who had his private papers burned at the end of his life Still, the book is organized curiously Part of the time, it seems to be about America of the 1880s, part of the time it is about Arthur That said, Mr Pafford has writtenbooks than I have.

  4. Gregory says:

    The author over reaches in his attempt to frame Arthur as a good president who heroically overcame his background This book leaves some stuff out, while there are also sections or even chapters in which Arthur is hardly mentioned at all.
