Tom Wicker’s Account Of Eisenhower Presidency Tops Weekend Reading
Tom Wicker’s account of Dwight Eisenhower’s Presidency tops this weekend’s reading list. I would detail what I’ve read so far, but I’m almost done and I’m going to make it a blog post at some later point.
Wicker was a long time political reporter at the New York Times.
The Wicker book is simply titled Dwight D. Eisenhower. It is part of the American President’s series that had been edited by Arthur Schlesinger.
Also, on the list is It Ain’t Over ‘Til It’s Over by Baseball Prospectus. This is an account of great baseball pennant races.
I’m a bit embarrassed to admit I’m reading this because those guys at Baseball Prospectus are a bit libertarian in their outlook and I should not be using valuable reading time on baseball.
But I suppose everybody has their vices.
It’s a great big book filled with both pictures and comprehensive explanations. I can’t suggest it strongly enough for people interested in this topic.
