I found this to be a very interesting read about an important time period in the United States. I had visited the Lyndon Johnson library while I was in Austin two years ago. I thought the author did a good job bringing many of the stories about President Johnson to life.
I would have liked it if the author had spent more time covering the Vietnam War, but there was a lot of time and material to cover.
It was really amazing to read that President Johnson withdrew his name as a presidential candidate in late March of the election year and it was almost a month later when Vice President Humphrey declared his candidacy. That is unthinkable in this day and age to think of a candidate running for six months.
I think this book is a good read for anyone that is interested in U.S. history. President Johnson's programs to this day have had a profound impact in the United States.
