5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book of American history July 28, 2010
By Phil
Verified Purchase
Here's a fantastic book if you're interested in American history. It has between 1 and 50 speeches from each president. There are inaugural addresses, farewell addresses, 30 of Roosevelt's fireside chats, Nixon talking about Watergate, speeches given at important events in American history and lots more.

Unfortunately there's a problem with the index. It's chronological, which is good, and every speech is active so you can click one and go right to it, which is also good, but if you want to go to a certain president you have to either search for his name or press Next Page many many times until you get to him. It would be nice if the first thing in the book was a list of all the presidents with each name active so you could click the president you want and go right to his list of speeches, and then click which speech you want.

Other than that, this is a wonderful book.

1.0 out of 5 stars The lack of an index is inexcusable January 2, 2011
By D. Levy

What I hoped to be an excellent collection is rendered nearly useless by the lack of an index. There is no way to easily find a Presidential speech, let alone easily move from chapter to chapter; you are forced to move through this collection page by page. This is a poor execution of a great idea.

1.0 out of 5 stars No table of contents or index March 3, 2013
This would be an amazing collection if only the kindle edition had a table of contents or index. Despite the product description, it has neither; false advertising.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Useful and Enjoyable Reference February 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
While we now tend to ignore public speeches, they weren't always something to dismiss as a product of political ambition, void of truth or deep belief. Many of the speeches and critical documents are very inspirational and can help ground you in the underlying belief and assumptions on which this country was founded and on which it has evolved. Each president gets a minimum of attention and more controversial or historically important presidents get more space. Lincoln, for example, gets ample space beyond The Gettysburg Address and deservedly so since his historical impact is so great. Lincoln, like many of our previous presidents, lived in a time where political speeches could galvanize and move a nation toward great changes. The whole book is well laid out. It is easy to find specific speeches or just browse around. A must have for anyone studying American history or just interested in the political process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good collection for the price January 2, 2011
By Presley
Good collection for 2 bucks. Use the table of contents to find your president(s) and speeches. Lack of index doesn't bother me, as you can find everything in the TOC. This a big collection and worth the whole 2 bucks and then some.
