Andrew Jackson by Robert V. Remini
This is one of the most celebrated and helpful biographies of Andrew Jackson available today. Remini pulls no punches, painting Jackson as a great hero, a powerful President of the people, and yet deeply flawed in many ways. Of particular interest at our present time is to observe how an 18th century President dealt with an economic collapse and banking crisis similar to one we are experiencing in the 21st century. Perhaps our leaders could learn a thing or two from Jackson.
