Presidential Biographies

It’s been my goal for the past few years to read at least one biography of the American Presidents of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries (George Washington to Theodore Roosevelt). So far I’ve read ones for Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk, and Theodore Roosevelt. (I have books on Zackary Taylor and Abraham Lincoln on my to-read list.) I’m especially anxious to find the essential biographies–the must-reads on a particular President.

If I have any readers out there, I would love to know your thoughts on the essential Presidential biographies I should read. The Presidents I’m especially interested in are James Madison, Martin Van Buren, John Tyler, and Franklin Pierce. I look forward to your suggestions!
