Very informative and well written. Ten years of research makes for very good reading as are most of David McCullough's efforts.

As always, McCullough serves up a richly detailed, historically scrupulous, and consistenty absorbing biography of a President who is often overlooked or relegated to the sidelines. Unreservedly recommended.

Well written, highly readable account of Harry S Truman's life and presidency. Highly recommended, eye opening account of recent American history. I suppose most American history is recent compared to Europe and Asia.

Character of an American
The next to last honest president we've had. How he got to be that way, and why we were so lucky. This was the man who refused to commercialize the post he had held so well, saying "The Presidency is not for sale."
