Review

Praise for A. Scott Berg’s Wilson

“[A] breathtaking biography.”—The Boston Globe

“A brilliant biography that still resonates in America today.”—Doris Kearns Goodwin

“Magisterial . . . At once intimate, sweeping, and authoritative.”—Los Angeles Times

“Berg, an elegant, prizewinning biographer whose fluent prose and honest sense of majesty have much in common with Wilson’s own writing, is especially well-suited to his subject.”—The New Yorker

“With the prescience that all truly great biographers possess, Berg discovered in Woodrow Wilson a figure who would understand Washington’s current state of affairs.”—Vanity Fair

“Mr. Berg reminds us of Wilson’s wit. . . . And he reminds us of Wilson’s tragedy. . . . A very good work of history.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Mr. Berg’s Wilson succeeds magnificently . . . It is no mean biographical achievement to have revealed Wilson the man with such delicacy and empathy.”—The Washington Times

“The most personal and penetrating biography written about the twenty-eighth president.”—New York Daily News

“[A] landmark biography.”—Louisville Courier-Journal

“[A] majestic biography . . . Insightful and intimate.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“By far the best single study of Wilson’s life and times . . . Berg’s study should remain the standard biography of this tragic figure for a long time.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Should be required reading . . . Berg’s illumination of the president’s humanity is riveting.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“[A] masterly portrait.”—Simon Winchester, The Wall Street Journal holiday gift guide

“An astonishing tale, narrated with moving efficiency and precision by Scott Berg.”—Robert McCrum, The Guardian (UK)

“Penetrating . . . readers can walk away with a profound and unique perspective on the man, offered by one of our most gifted biographers.”—Deseret News

“It has taken nearly a century for someone with Berg’s own, somewhat Wilsonian drive to take the full measure of this singular president whose soul echoes, fitfully, in the professorial aura and singularity of Barack Obama.”—USA Today

“Berg is a masterful biographer; his books on Charles Lindbergh, Samuel Goldwyn, and Max Perkins have received well-deserved plaudits and prizes. Wilson is a comparably rewarding reading experience. . . . An absorbing look at a formative period in American history and a magnanimous appraisal of an uncommon leader whose controversial idealism resounds to this day.”—The Miami Herald

“No previous biographer has told [Wilson’s] story so well.”—The Daily Beast

“Exhaustively researched and wonderfully written. . . . This vivid portrait of Wilson and America has much to offer readers who understand that the world and our nation are still confronting many of the issues that Wilson faced in the White House a century ago.”—Bookreporter.com

“Berg’s research is deep and thorough.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Readable, authoritative, and, most usefully, inspiring.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[An] excellent biography.”—Library Journal (starred review)
