Presidents' Body Counts: The Twelve Worst and Four Best American Presidents Based on How Many Lived or Died Because of Their Actions
Endorsed by the Thom Hartmann Show! Over 1000 downloads! Most rankings of presidents are popularity contests based on most recognized or best liked based on the political bias of the judges. This book abandons all partisan nonsense for the only ranking that matters a humanitarian one: Who were our best and worst presidents, based on how many lived or died because of their actions? Twelves presidents were our worst, guilty of crimes as serious as genocide or wars of aggression. Many ignored genocide or terrorism, or were so incompetent or blinded by politics, that sometimes millions died. Four presidents, each strongly despised by many, were actually our best presidents, saving millions of lives, defending human rights, and preventing wars.

Dec 24, 2015Firstly, any assessment of U.S. presidents in which Jimmy Carter comes out as third best, which he does by this author's reasoning, is instantly suspect. In addition, to suggest that dropping the atomic bomb on Japan in WWII had no impact on bringing that war to a close is uncommonly shortsighted, regardless of the moral position one takes on the use of such weapons. Finally, to list Barack Obama even among the presidents with a mixed record because of speculation that Obamacare will save tens of thousands of lives each year over its lifetime shows a simplistic bias that calls all of the author's other reasoning into question. Not only is the so-called Affordable Health Care Act proving to be a dismal failure by any objective measure, it is reasonably clear that the president's goal was never to provide affordable health care for Americans in the first place. From the time he entered elected office in the Illinois state Senate, Mr. Obama has demonstrated the greatest disdain for human...

And before you protest, I tell you without fear of contradiction that babies killed in abortion clinics are human too. And though Obama isn't the only U.S. president with blood on his hands, he stands as number ONE among equals. I can't in good conscience recommend the book, but I can understand why a reader of this kind of material would find the premise intriguing.< Less
Jul 4, 2014Audacity of Truth – A review of the book ‘President’s Body Counts’ In Al Carroll's new book, ‘Presidents’ Body Counts: The Twelve Worst and Four Best American Presidents Based on How Many Lived or Died Because of Their Actions’, the author takes on a challenge. Most books by journalists, political commentators, and historians all appear to be more loyal to the White House than the truth; but not this book. It revels in detail about the evils done by our past presidents, the numerous cases of mass murder, incompetence, and misconduct. But it also takes a look at our noblest presidents. This is a brave and magisterial work that will make you look again at American history and the Presidency. It’s a real eye-opener to anyone who thinks they know everything there is to know about U.S. history. It is the truth that you won’t hear through your mainstream media. Al Carroll’s research and superb writing skill are clearly displayed in this wonderful book which has a beautiful and engaging use... More > of phrases, elegant pacing, clear intent, and the right use of bold and highlighted passages to convey his arguments even more strongly. You will be amazed at the speed you will finish a book of this size. This is because the author has filled each page with enough oomph while discussing the matter at hand and all the while never losing its momentum and readability. The book isn’t a mere expose on the many ills committed by the Presidents such as Nixon and Reagan due to their negligence or stubborn highhandedness or mere paranoia. It also reveals to us Presidents like Jefferson, Lincoln and Grant whose broader vision in times of strife and trouble helped them to act as a force for positive change. The best thing about Al Carroll’s effort is his ability to describe events in the context of the issues and the politics of the time. Presidents’ Body Counts is a grim reminder that many of our Founding Fathers and other political leaders from the nation's formative years to the present time are not the infallible icons of our nation’s history as we imagined them to be. Al Carroll’s ‘Presidents’ Body Counts: The Twelve Worst and Four Best American Presidents Based on How Many Lived or Died Because of Their Actions’ is a book that every student of history should read at least once. And even if you are not into the subject, the author’s ability to traverse through tough subjects as one would normally do in a novel will win him plenty of fans.< Less
