Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

In which two years did three different individuals serve as president of the United States? As a young law student, which president broke into the dean's office at Duke University Law School? Who became president of the United States without having been elected president or vice president? Who was nicknamed "Old Man Eloquent"? From the arcane to the textbook, these 1,200 trivia questions are sure to entertain and educate. Broken into four sections--Life Before the Presidency, Executing the Office, Presidential Households, and Presidential Miscellanea--there are a few stumpers on each page, along with amazing, curious facts and figures. In all, Presidential Trivia is a feast for trivia buffs. (By the way: 1841 & 1881; Richard Nixon; Gerald Ford; and John Quincy Adams.)

One of my favorite subjects has long been the presidents of the United States. I enjoy reading books on them and picked up many facts along the way. In high school, I participated in President's Bowl (a presidential trivia challenge) and won. My friends knew me as the guy who was hopelessly obsessed with presidential trivia. While visiting Florida I found this book and picked it up.

Turns out my knowledge of presidential facts wasn't as good as I had thought. This volume is full of information that surprised me and everyone around me. I learned a ton from this book and was able to stump those who knew more about American history than I did including some history teachers! I read this whenever I have the chance not only to keep sharp on my knowledge, but also to pick up more information.

This is a must-have for anyone who likes the presidents or American history in general. You won't be disappointed and you'll definitely learn a lot about the past rulers of the country!

Ernie Couch's PRESIDENTIAL TRIVIA is hard. How hard? Take these question, for example: Which president was named for the physician who delivered him?* What Oklahoma Territory Indian reservation did Herbert Hoover spend several years with his uncle?**

The book is in question and answer format, so readers will be treated to nearly 200 pages of a Q&A format. There's no narrative drive, and no real logical progression to the questions either. The book is divided into
four sections: Life Before Presidency (trivia about the backgrounds of presidents), Executing the Office (trivia about happenings while the subject was president), Presidential Households (trivia about families, first ladies), and Presidential Miscellanea (trivia that doesn't clearly fall under other categories). Most of the questions are phrased coherently, but I couldn't help but feel as if they could be reworded to be more fun. For example, instead of asking "Where was John F. Kennedy born?", you could ask "What president was born in Brookline, Massachusetts?". Sure, it makes the question easier, but it also leaves some room for deduction -- if you don't know Brookline, Mass, then there's no way to actually solve it without knowing it from rote memory. But hey, that's just my preference.

The content of this book goes back and forth from the hopelessly obscure to the old classics. PRESIDENTIAL TRIVIA was copyrighted in 1996, so there's no trivia on George W. Bush or Barack Obama. That means you'll miss out on at least one neat piece of trivia: What two presidents share a middle name?***

I would recommend this book to trivia buffs that are hungry for presidential knowledge -- there's sure to be several entries here that you haven't stumbled across yet!

For anyone who enjoys trivia,particularly trivia about the U.S Presidents;here is a real gem. It was published on February 26,1996 ( just ignore what is a typographical error where it states in the copyright page that it was published in 1966).It covers all, the Presidents up to the start of the term of Bill Clinton in 1993.There are a total of 191 pages.The trivia are presented in 4 sections;
I LIFE BEFORE THE PRESIDENCY
II EXECUTING THE OFFICE

IV PRESIDENTIAL MISCELLANEA
and

What I find really good about these bits of trivia,is that the answer is given right along with the question;insteaad at the "back of the book" ,which is the way thingsre usually done.
All in all there are over 1,200 unusual,interesting and little known facts.
Just to give you an idea of the interesting trivia you'll find,here are a few;

Who was the first presidents to visit all fifty states?
Who was the first president to have his oath of office administered by a woman?
Which president had only $90 in cash when he left the presidency at age 70?
