I’m a chemical engineer, an investment banker, a private pilot and an American history enthusiast. And I love great biographies.

Ten years ago I started traveling overseas frequently and found myself wasting enormous time sitting on airplanes. So I decided to begin reading the very best biographies I could find.

I began collecting great biographies of the most fascinating people I could find: famous explorers, scientists, sports figures and other interesting personalities. But I quickly focused on a single genre which has consumed the last five years of my life: presidential biographies.

In 2012 I began reading and reviewing each of the best presidential biographies I could find, beginning with George Washington. My journey through the best presidential biographies is being documented at www.bestpresidentialbios.com.

I’m 195 biographies into that adventure and will be finished by Presidents’ Day 2019. Then I will begin reading and reviewing the very best biographies I can find of everyone else… beginning with Ron Chernow’s “Alexander Hamilton”!

  1. Steve: Thank you very much for including my poor book. Mario Cuomo was a great man and the book has been well received quite beyond its due. I’ve just heard that Barnes & Noble just ordered another thousand copies. But I was really delighted to have your approval. Is there a good mailing address for you…? I’d like to send you some more info about the book. And the book itself. Bill O’S Many thanks

    • Thanks for your note and congratulations on your book! I found Mario Cuomo to be a fascinating and intriguing character…and he was certainly the object of great admiration on the part of my Italian-born but New York-resident in-laws 🙂

      No worries on sending a copy of the book – I purchase every book I read and review and I consider that a small price to pay getting to read great biographies about interesting individuals. If you have other information about the book I might find useful or interesting let me know (the easiest way for me to get stuff is via email: sr20pilotbios -at- gmail.com) but other means of delivery can be utilized as well!
