Think You Know Your Presidents?

Adam Boretz -- October 26th, 2012

With Election Day just around the corner, we thought it might be wise to take a look back at — and learn valuable lessons from — our many illustrious former American Presidents.

We’re talking Nixon, Clinton, Wilson, FDR. We’re talking Washington and JFK. And, we’re definitely talking TAFT.

But — as we quickly learned from watching the following videos from Random House Audio — we really don’t know what we’re talking about when it comes to presidential history.

Released to celebrate the audio edition of Kenneth C. Davis’s Don’t Know Much About the American Presidents, these three videos — titled “Think You Know Your Presidents?” — are guaranteed to test your knowledge of all things POTUS.
