The Fix’s List of “Best” Presidential Biographies

Image

This week Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post’s “The Fix” published a list of presidential biographies that he considered to be the best.  Every president is represented (even William Henry Harrison!) and there is a mix of popular and scholarly works, although trade books far outnumber academic works.

President’s Day always rouses these sort of ranking activities.  What are your favorite presidential biographies?  Is there any such thing?  Feel free to comment below.
