I’m a chemical engineer, an investment banker and a huge fan of American history. And I absolutely love great biographies. When I found myself spending enormous time sitting on airplane while traveling for business I began looking for a way to use all that wasted time.
So I started collecting and reading biographies – of politicians, famous explorers, scientists and other interesting personalities. I quickly focused on a single genre which has consumed the last four years of my life: presidential biographies.
In late 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 175 biographies into that adventure. But in the meantime I’m expanding my collection of the best biographies I can find of anyone…and I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing them once I get through my first round with the presidents…beginning with Ron Chernow’s “Alexander Hamilton”!
