  • Excellent Biography Jul 13, 2012
    by sam h c

    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
    by eilifh

    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.
