  • Robert A. Caro at his best Nov 8, 2015
    by Mark C

    Having read all the available LBJ biographies and rating Caro the best biographer I have ever read, I wanted to read everything he has written. The Moses biography is the rest and my only wish is that Caro had added a bit more (of context--for which there wasn't space) to make two volumes. The picture of an amazingly brilliant, successful and flawed man was rich, documented and compelling.

  • Excellent Biography 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. 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.
