What are your opinions about the best books about each administration in American history?

I would like to read a book about each President.

The Fix had a roundup a couple of years ago, although it's biased toward recent, best-selling hagiographies.

I looked at the book, looks like the best Nixon one out there, it looks really interesting.

Currently reading The Invisible Bridge. Perlstein is fantastic - probably the first author I'd recommend to anyone interested in Nixon or Reagan. (Or, for that matter, the post-Goldwater Republican Party.)

I didn't know he had another book out. Looks like it's shaping up to be a trilogy!

It is! I saw him on C-SPAN's "Q&A" two weeks ago, and he said he has a fourth and final book in the works that will cover the Carter presidency and the final rise of Reagan, ending with his 1981 inauguration. He said it will be his last political book for a good while and will be writing mostly about sports for the time being.

Has anyone read 41 by GW Bush?

Thoughts if you have?

There was a guy doing a decade by decade hunt on Lyndon Johnson. Can't remember his name though. I just remember them getting into some really grisly details about his relations with the Kennedy's .

Robert Caro, one of the best historians of our time. I read the first volume of his series and it was incredible.
