Format: Paperback
This is a collection of essays on the presidency. It doesn't look like an interesting book, but many of the pieces are in fact quite interesting. The book covers many different aspects of the presidency, and one can learn a lot merely by reading this book. Although it is definitely an academic book, it is not so dry that it cannot be read by those that are not involved with academics.

Academic but easy read if you don't know a lot about the presidency (US) or if you are making a case and want to know the facts to back it up.

I am reading this book because it is required for my master's level class. I have read a lot of dry/boring/dull textbooks but this one is interesting and very easy reading.
