Publisher's Summary

Do you love American history? Do you enjoy learning about the US presidents? If so, then this president trivia book is for you. 

The Great Book of Crazy President Trivia is filled with many lesser-known facts about the American presidents. It is filled with great stories of the US presidents that you will not find in any US history books. This president trivia book is going to let you see the presidents of the past in a whole new light. Learn about their personal lives, the challenges they faced, and their great accomplishments. 

When you listen to this trivia book, you are going to learn not only about the presidents of the US but about the history of the US as well. When we learn about the presidents, most often we learn about a few of their accomplishments that they had while in office. However, this book is going to show you the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to the lives of these men. 

At the end of each chapter, you will find trivia questions and answers that are going to allow you to learn even more about the men who have been in charge of the United States of America. You are going to learn how war not only challenged these men but how it affected who they were. You will see how great decisions were made as well as some that were not so great.  

In the end, you are going to find that these men were in fact just men who took on a huge responsibility. Some of them were successful, some of them failed miserably, but each of them, with their own hands, molded the US into what it is today.

    "Not So Crazy"

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This was an easy and entertaining listen, but many of the facts I already knew and are general knowledge. As such, it didn't really live up to the title and was slightly boring.

    "I Absolutely Love These Books by Bill O'Neill"



    🖒 I absolutely love these books by Bill O'Neill. They are written for older elementary school students, but I think they are appropriate for any age. If you are a history or political junkie, like yours truly, you will love it as much as I did.

    🖒 This book highlights each of our 45 presidents, giving a brief history (not found in history books) and a few quirky facts that may make you see that president in a different light.

    🖒 This is an instructive book with opportunities at the end of each chapter for the listener to test himself on the material he just heard. A great way to reinforce learning.

    🖒🖒 Rob Maxwell is engaging and makes the book entertaining. I really enjoyed his performance.

    "Quirky not so Crazy"

    This was a fun quick listen on trivia of American Presidents. There were some great facts thrown in that I did not know from my previous study. Many of the facts given were more of a quirky nature and less crazy reveal. All in all a fun listen.


    I provided this review in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Funny and Educational"

    Author Bill O'Neill has collected fun and quirky facts about our presidents. The format was fresh and enjoyable. Coupled with the narration skills of Rob Maxwell, this audiobook is a winning combination. Mr. Maxwell's comedic timing is perfect. His choice of pauses allows the listener to fully absorb and appreciate the author's writing. Thank you for an enjoyable listening experience.

    "I didn't know that!!!"

    I enjoyed this book with all of its trivia. It's a great teaser to read more in depth biographies of your favorite presidents.

    President Lyndon B. Johnson-naughty, naughty!

    Rob Maxwell did a great job of narrating.

    "Some aren't so crazy but still interesting"

    Despite being titled "crazy president trivia" much of the trivia here, while interesting, ins't really crazy. This book is good for getting a quick overview of who the Presidents are, what they did and what they are known for.

    The book runs through each of the presidents, telling a brief history of their Presidency (although for some, like Lincoln, it focuses as much on his pre-Presidential life). Some it is a straight forward history. 'They we're elected here, they did this'. Some have some interesting stuff - like Cleveland marrying his ward who was 27 years younger than him.

    There are some things that are strange, possibly unintentionally so. The author states that Reagan was an amazing President, telling of some of the things he did. Then a few lines later, in some of the small trivia parts he talks about how Reagan like Trump is. Does that mean he thinks Trump is amazing? I don't know. I would hazard a guess the author is more Republican than Democrat, based on how he talks about the last few Presidents. Then again, it is hard to talk about the legacy of presidents who are very recent, as the legacy isn't fully known. I don't think it changes the book too much - it seems fairly even handed more the most part.

    Rob Maxwell does well with narration. Clear, well paced and enjoyable to listen to.

    "Fun book for folks who like presidential trivia"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to my non-history oriented friends. Folks who are interested in learning a little about presidents but don't want to crack open a full-size biography. The snippets are short, but may encourage listeners to learn more about each president. I'm a historian so I knew a lot of the facts in the book, but there were a few that I wasn't aware of that made me want to explore in more depth.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any of Rob Maxwell's books before, but I felt his performance was quite good. He seems to be enjoying himself while reading it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is a great book for listening if you don't have a whole lot of time. You can listen to it for 10-15 minutes at a time and it doesn't disrupt the story.

    "I learned quite a bit listening to this!"

    Bill O'Neill's The Great Book of Crazy President Trivia is exactly that-A big book full of presidential trivia! I'll admit that I'm not the smartest person when it comes to Presidential trivia. My hubby is like a walking history book and knows tons more than I do. Well, I learned a lot listening to this and my hubby even learned a few new things while listening, which is pretty impressive for someone who never takes the TV off of The History Channel. I enjoyed how things were mixed up and it wasn't just one trivia fact after another. Switching to some multiple choice questions, etc. kept things fresh. There were a few spots where a joke was made about some piece of trivia and it ended up coming super lame, though that honestly made us laugh IRL because it sounded so corny. Rob Maxwell's narration was good, and I'd listen to other books narrated by him in the future. Overall, I learned some fun, new facts about our presidents that I likely otherwise wouldn't have ever learned. Definitely worth a listen if you need to bone up on your Presidential trivia!
