Abstract:

Truman comments about FDR, the workings of the government and the Constitution, and presidential duties.

"Outspoken, sometimes outrageous, always full of common sense and uncommon insights, this totally frank book by Harry S. Truman brings us the full flavor of an exceptional man and his ideas. With the down-home, across-the-back-fence feeling of a born storyteller from Missouri, the thirty-third president speaks directly and conversationally to the reader about the office of the presidency, about the eight best and eight worst U.S. presidents, and about his own experiences in office."--Book Jacket.
