the definitive biography Sep 16, 2008
Previous biographies have emphasized one aspect or another of Webster's life, but this is the first one to comprehensively tie everything together. Webster was an incredibly complex and daunting character, and Remini does a wonderful, insightful, and extremely detailed job of showing his readers every inch of that complexity. The fact that the volume is so effortlessly readable is just a bonus. This is the definitive biography of Webster.
