This is the Presidential election season in the United States, and that's one reason I picked up this small book of trivia. Good fun reading lots of interesting things about all the US Presidents, right from George Washington to Barack Obama. This can be a good resource for people who are interested in quizzing. It talks of:
- The first President to actually live in the White House.
- Presidents who have died on Independence Day.
- The President who died within one month of being sworn in.
- The first President to wear a blue jeans to the Oval Office
- The President who got a speeding ticket because he drove the horse too fast
- The first President to use a telephone in the White House
- The first President to ride in an automobile. But more interesting is what was special about that journey
- The President who is related to 11 other presidents by blood or by marriage
- The first President to run a full marathon.
- The President who gets hair cut every week
And so and so forth...
