Low Price Guarantee
We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Contributor Bio(s): Don Robb began his second career in educational publishing after seven years as a teacher. After graduating from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, where he studied history and political science, Don taught Spanish, French, and English as a second language at the high school level in Toledo, Ohio, then later at a junior high school in Hackensack, New Jersey.

His first job in publishing was as a foreign language consultant for Holt, Rinehart. He went on to serve in a variety of editorial and marketing capacities there, and at Houghton Mifflin Co., where he became a vice president. He left that position to join Charlesbridge (then Mastery Education Corporation) in 1981.

Don is an avid reader and a writer. His particular interests are history--especially American history--science non-fiction, and mysteries.
Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Spring)
From the presidents' powers and responsibilities to their families and vice presidents, this updated edition provides a basic introduction to the executive office. Each section's opening paragraph gives simple facts followed by a bulleted list of examples; facing pages offer portraitlike colored-ink illustrations that support the text. Though it's not very substantive, this book could serve as an adequate starting point for further research. Reading list, websites. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
