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.


Brilliant Book.

by eilifh on Jul 15, 2010

Might be the best I've ever read - on politics, power and urban development. Fascinating and terrifying, the aggression and intelligence of one man putting democracy aside and ruling NYC and NY State like an emperor. Lots of American History from early to mid-20th century as well. 1200 pages - but shifting perspectives and a brilliant writer.
