Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This remarkable multivolume work of historical scholarship is chock-full of detail on every aspect of the life of president Johnson through his tenure as a master of the Senate. What emerges is a psyche that at times appears to be deranged, often abusive (to his wife, his staff, and anyone he thought to be beneath him), frequently calculating for political gain without any feeling for those constituents his actions will harm, but, paradoxically, containing an overriding moral sense in matters of national policy. In short, Johnson was a political genius but a complete enigma as a man. A bonus here is Caro's inclusion of a complete history of the U.S. Senate, as well as individual, in-depth biographies of major opponents and supporters of Johnson from among his Senate cohorts. Excellent narration by Grover Gardner never flags during the extremely long audiobook. Highly recommended for all libraries.
