    For the sheer magnitude, depth and authority of its revelations, The Power Broker stands alone---a huge and galvanizing biography revealing not only the virtually unknown saga of one man's incredible accumulation of power, but the hidden story of the shaping (and mis-shaping) of New York through the past half-century. Robert Caro's monumental book makes public what few outsiders have known: that Robert Moses was the single most powerful man of our time in the City and in the State of New York.

Excellent Biography

by sam h c on Jul 13, 2012

This is an excellent and insightful book. Caro later used the same research and writing prowess which he displayed here to produce his volumes on LBJ. More
