  • Amazing

    By Eyedocnj
    Caro sets the standard for all biographers.
  • The Passage of Power

    By Mitchell Gardner
    One of greatest stories never told . Caro is masterful as always in bringing us deep into the bowels of history and our hero , LBJ . Bring on the rest of it soon , even if it could and should require two final volumes to do him justice. I can see one book just on Vietnam , the other the Great Society .
  • Excellent

    By Talk about Music
    Being a direct beneficiary of many of the bills he championed as President I often wondered what made a man from Texas do the things he did. Thankfully, Robert Caro shows me with this and the other LBJ books what made the man from his family history, to his relationship with father and why he did those things and what made him the man he was LBJ. Thank you and so looking forward to the final book in the series.
  • Insider

    By Life's Purpose
    What a great read. Actually, it was a listen because I bought the audio version and listened to it on my drive to La Jolla. I felt like an insider in the politics of the early 60's. It had far more about the Kennedy's than I expected, but the lives of these men were so entwined that the book had to tell both stories. Thorough, insightful, smart and addictive. What a great book.
  • LBJ

    By Dan Kinard
    Excellent. Very readable.
  • The Passage of Power

    By Diprog
    The book itself is brilliant: beautifully written, exhaustively researched, illuminating, incisive -- an immersive experience. The iBook version doesn't do it justice -- all flaws and typos, the worst of which is dropped pages at the ends of chapters. Someone should be fired for doing a classic such a disservice...and readers who had to put up with this incompetence deserve a refund.
  • Masterful

    By JazzReview
    Robert Caro is the Master of the Written Word. Meticulously researched and gripping, this fourth volume on LBJ covers the critical period from his run for the vice presidency through his unexpected assumption of the presidency. Can't put it down. Worthy of the National Book Award and a Pulitzer.
  • heroic

    By Terry Weldon
    This volume proves that only LBJ--certainly not the Kennedy's--had the will and skill to pass the nation-changing Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the even more important Voting Rights Act of 1965. and, in this volume Caro overcomes the obvious distaste hr has for Johnson's personality and gives him full credit for his achievements.
