A fresh look at the only president to serve nonconsecutive terms.

Though often overlooked, Grover Cleveland was a significant figure in American presidential history. Having run for President three times and gaining the popular vote majority each time -- despite losing the electoral college in 1892 -- Cleveland was unique in the line of nineteenth-century Chief Executives.

In this book, presidential historian Henry F. Graff revives Cleveland's fame, explaining how he fought to restore stature to the office in the wake of several weak administrations. Within these pages are the elements of a rags-to-riches story as well as an account of the political world that created American leaders before the advent of modern media.

    " If you do not want to read every in depth detail of a president, this is a great series. Like cliff notes on presidents, just better written. "

    " Everyone should read about Grover Cleveland. But this was not that great of a book. Just thinking about Robert Caro's books on LBJ or Edmund Morris's books on Teddy Roosevelt makes me sad that poor old Cleveland does not have such a biographer. "
