White House Wit, Wisdom, and Wisecracks is a compilation of quotes and trivia relating to each of the 44 Presidents. Each chapter begins with background information on the president, including years in office, political party, their nickname, and a brief history of their term. The basic information is followed by a multitude of quotes, often including the quotes' context.

 

Opinion: 

This book delivers exactly what it promises-  a neat package of quotes, trivia and facts about the 44 United States Presidents. Some quotes are funny, others are reflective, and some are inspirational. The book covers everything from Taft's bathtub fiasco to Woodrow Wilson's record number of golf rounds.

My favorite thing about this compilation is the context given to some of the quotes. Knowing the circumstances surrounding each inclusion gave the quotes relevance. I would have preferred a more thorough history of each president and the context of every single quote, but this may have jeopardized the easy-to-navigate organization of the book. 

All in all, this book is a great resource for presidential quotes and trivia. I would recommend it to any student looking for relevant Presidential wisdom for essays, or to the casual reader interested in clever, enlightening tidbits from each presidency.
