Read further after this book which is just a primer. Not enough about the former president in this book. Look elsewhere.
Scoreboard Bleeding
This well written, most interesting book was a great overview on the life of the 27th president of the United States, who also served as chief justice of the Supreme Court after his one term as president. Taft liked being chief justice much more than he did president and was the only president to also serve in that capacity. Taft was heavy from birth and at his heaviest weighed 350 pounds. He had a great sense of humor and often joked about himself. His wife Nellie was his dearest friend and most sought after advisor. The book doesn't give you his every word, but is short, most enjoyable overview of his entire life.
