Read "Presidential Courage Brave Leaders and How They Changed . Brave Leaders and How They Changed America 1789-1989. by Michael R. Beschloss.

The author of more than 50 non-fiction books and a leading physician, whose lifetime hobby has been the study of American Presidents, have teamed up to document an astonishing subject. This is the extraordinary story of those American Presidents who have suffered illnesses or injuries so critical they have threatened not only the man in the White House but the entire nation. Here you will find a startling behind-the-scenes story of the nation's chief executives who have been stricken—some to the point of being unable to remain on the job.

Interesting and tedious. How can that be? The subject is fascinating while the pile up of detail becomes a bit much. I forced myself to read all of it and am glad I did because I now have an awareness which I have not seen available elsewhere. Unfortunately there is no bibliography and there are no footnotes.

The Presidency as seen by the Medical Profession .... extremely accurate and thought provoking !

I bought this for a friend. I've read the book five times. That ought to tell you my feelings. It is the best book I've every read on the Presidents.

Extremely disappointed-no documentation or sources cited.

This is a unique book, providing valuable insights into the health of our country's chief executives. It is an interesting mixture of the bizarre - how a president had a rubber prosthesis fitted in his mouth and his wife supposedly never discovered it - to Old Hickory's forever being tomented by dysentery. It makes you wonder how many of those presidents that have been judged as truly 'great' would have been denied the highest offcie of the land had we placed their helth under the 'microscope' we place our current 'candidates' for this post. Consider what Thomas Eagleton went through in 1972 when he admitted to mental illness (successfully treated) when George McGovern selcted him for his vice-Presidential running mate.(Only a 'hearbeat' away)

The web page describing this book could be more forthcoming. The book was published in 1980 and is being re-issued now. Downgraded to three stars for hiding information.
