Reviews of Truman

John T A
by John T A on Mar 14, 2013

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

Nancy  T

Superb

by Nancy T on Mar 7, 2013

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. More

Malcolm J

Truman

by Malcolm J on Jan 3, 2013

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. More

Bernard P

by Bernard P on Nov 17, 2011

The author has again turned out a very readable and informative biography of a great President More
