Summary
The author analyzes our first seven leaders' strengths and weaknesses in public communication, organizational capacity, political skill, policy vision, cognitive style, and emotional intelligence. Their similarities and differences support his central thesis that, at any given time, it matters who happens to be President. None has had the same personal and political skills. Greenstein's approach emphasizes particular personal strengths and weaknesses, which distinguishes this volume from works which focus more on political environment and the times in which various Presidents served. Not all Presidents are created equal, and leadership style clearly matters
