President Garfield by C.W. Goodyear

Solid 4 stars. I am absolutely stunned by this book. We all know about President Garfield, he was elected, he was shot, Alexander Graham Bell turns up, Garfield dies. But, there is much, much more to the story. I consider myself an educated person but the depth of my lack of knowledge of our 20th President is staggering. C.W. Goodyear has written a meticulously researched and detailed biography that gives not just facts and history but a comprehensive view of one of our most interesting Presidents. His life before the White House was amazing-Garfield is up there with Teddy Roosevelt for “Are you kidding me? What?” moments. As one of the four assassinated American Presidents, Garfield is the ‘sleeper’, never given the attention of the others but he richly deserves a book like this one. I highly recommend this book; I was engrossed in it for over three weeks.

A copy was given to me and here is my own opinion: get this book and read it!
