Do you love American history? Do you enjoy learning about the US presidents? If so, then this president trivia book is for you.
The Great Book of Crazy President Trivia is filled with many lesser-known facts about the American presidents. It is filled with great stories of the US presidents that you will not find in any US history books. This president trivia book is going to let you see the presidents of the past in a whole new light. Learn about their personal lives, the challenges they faced, and their great accomplishments.
When you listen to this trivia book, you are going to learn not only about the presidents of the US but about the history of the US as well. When we learn about the presidents, most often we learn about a few of their accomplishments that they had while in office. However, this book is going to show you the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to the lives of these men.
At the end of each chapter, you will find trivia questions and answers that are going to allow you to learn even more about the men who have been in charge of the United States of America. You are going to learn how war not only challenged these men but how it affected who they were. You will see how great decisions were made as well as some that were not so great.
In the end, you are going to find that these men were in fact just men who took on a huge responsibility. Some of them were successful, some of them failed miserably, but each of them, with their own hands, molded the US into what it is today.
🖒 I absolutely love these books by Bill O'Neill. They are written for older elementary school students, but I think they are appropriate for any age. If you are a history or political junkie, like yours truly, you will love it as much as I did.
🖒 This book highlights each of our 45 presidents, giving a brief history (not found in history books) and a few quirky facts that may make you see that president in a different light.
🖒 This is an instructive book with opportunities at the end of each chapter for the listener to test himself on the material he just heard. A great way to reinforce learning.
🖒🖒 Rob Maxwell is engaging and makes the book entertaining. I really enjoyed his performance.

This was full of little known facts about every president.I was very surprised to find out how Abe Lincoln decided to become a Lawyer!Rob Maxwell was a fine narrator for this project.“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
This is good for someone that doesn't know a lot about presidents and wants to learn some quick facts. Most facts about the later presidents were things that could be heard on the news. Not terrible.
Any additional comments?
Bill O'Neill has put together another great Trivia Book. This one includes trivia on all the US Presidents, from Washington to Trump!

This was a fun quick listen on trivia of American Presidents. There were some great facts thrown in that I did not know from my previous study. Many of the facts given were more of a quirky nature and less crazy reveal. All in all a fun listen.

Author Bill O'Neill has collected fun and quirky facts about our presidents. The format was fresh and enjoyable. Coupled with the narration skills of Rob Maxwell, this audiobook is a winning combination. Mr. Maxwell's comedic timing is perfect. His choice of pauses allows the listener to fully absorb and appreciate the author's writing. Thank you for an enjoyable listening experience.
Really interesting information about each of the US Presidents. A lot of new facts that I learned. I'll most likely come back to this book in the future for a refresher!

Despite being titled "crazy president trivia" much of the trivia here, while interesting, ins't really crazy. This book is good for getting a quick overview of who the Presidents are, what they did and what they are known for.
The book runs through each of the presidents, telling a brief history of their Presidency (although for some, like Lincoln, it focuses as much on his pre-Presidential life). Some it is a straight forward history. 'They we're elected here, they did this'. Some have some interesting stuff - like Cleveland marrying his ward who was 27 years younger than him.
There are some things that are strange, possibly unintentionally so. The author states that Reagan was an amazing President, telling of some of the things he did. Then a few lines later, in some of the small trivia parts he talks about how Reagan like Trump is. Does that mean he thinks Trump is amazing? I don't know. I would hazard a guess the author is more Republican than Democrat, based on how he talks about the last few Presidents. Then again, it is hard to talk about the legacy of presidents who are very recent, as the legacy isn't fully known. I don't think it changes the book too much - it seems fairly even handed more the most part.
Rob Maxwell does well with narration. Clear, well paced and enjoyable to listen to.

This was an easy and entertaining listen, but many of the facts I already knew and are general knowledge. As such, it didn't really live up to the title and was slightly boring.
