How is the president chosen? What are the president’s duties? Who runs the nation if the president gets sick? These are just a few of the questions author Mark Thorburn answers in his book THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH: LEADING THE NATION. Also explained are the origins of the presidency, the daily workings and structure of the executive branch, its relationship to the rest of the government, and examples from history that highlight the various roles our presidents have played.
