While many authors allow their biases to creep into their works, historians and biographers need to be particularly on guard to prevent this. Unfortunately, in this case, the author hits you right in the face from the start with her bias and keep hammering at it until nearly the last paragraph.
President Andrew Johnson was an abysmal example of a president (along with several others) and probably should not have been in a position to come to the office...but he did. This book tells the story of his rise to power and his poor performance in the job but there are numerous significant passages that dwell on his major flaws (primarily racism) which precluded more factual aspects of his Reconstruction fights with Congress and the impeachment process he faced.
Fortunately, the remaining books which I have read in this series do not suffer from a similar structural flaw.
