Welcome to PresidentialBiographyChallenge.info. I put this site together after receiving inspiration from the book “The Power of Moments” by Chip and Dan Heath. In the book, Chip and Dan discuss an individual that decides to read a biography on every US President in order to feed his historical interest. At the end of each biography, he collects a Presidential Coin to celebrate his accomplishment. That is how he turns his reading of a biography into a memorable moment.
This made me realize how little I know about the US Presidents. I could name the last six or so, but if you get much further back I have such a lack of knowledge that it is embarrassing, which made me realize I needed to do my own Presidential Biography Challenge!
As a method of absorbing the material I have decided to start this blog. It is for myself more than others, but if you happen to stumble upon it, maybe it will encourage you to learn more about our shared history. I found it rewarding and maybe you will too…
