For listeners who hunger for presidential trivia or who love food or history, this book on presidents and their food will be a treat. Narrator Pat Grimes serves up heaping helpings of fun facts and delectable details about presidential favorites ranging from George Washington's squirrel stew to Donald Trump's fast food. Grimes offers a solid narration. His voice is generally authoritative without sounding pedantic. He expresses humor and even surprise at appropriate moments. There are few direct quotes, so Grimes doesn't try to imitate presidents' voices. The author focuses on presidents in generally chronological order, and each presidential chapter is organized by themes. This episodic structure makes for easy listening and allows listeners to start and stop without losing the sense of the overall narrative. This work is a feast for the ears. R.C.G.
