The Last Jeffersonian By: Ryan S. Walters

A Book I could not finish!!!! 

Unfortunately, there are not many books about Grover Cleveland.  Although the book title is true in the sense that he was a Jeffersonian, this book failed in a big way.

I so wanted to get into this book and read about one of the most interesting Presidents in my opinion.  He was served two terms but not consecutively like all the others that served two terms. 

The problem with this book is how partisan it was. I tried to stick to it, but a book about a President of the late 19th century has no room for talk about Obama, Sara Palin, Jeremiah Wright et al.  It was distracting.  I got to 50% on the Kindle and could no longer stomach it.  I am truly unhappy.  I have per-ordered the John Pafford book, not out for another 3 months.  Will have to wait.  Thankfully, I picked this book up for $3.00.

Unless you are on the ant-Obama bandwagon, I do not recommend.
