In this Book

Ambition, Pragmatism, and Party
summary
A beautifully written biography of Gerald Ford sheds new light on a man who was much more than an accidental president.  Sailor, athlete, prosecutor, politician, and ultimately unlikely commander-in-chief, Ford’s story is one of the entire American century, and Kaufman tells it brilliantly.
