68. The Years of Lyndon Johnson: The Path to Power

The Years of Lyndon Johnson: The Path to Power
by Robert Caro

A basically perfect biography. Caro is not only a great researcher and historian, he's also a great writer. I was especially interested in the section on Johnson's years at the college in San Marcos since my great-grandmother who raised me attended this school at the same time. I'm looking forward to reading the next two volumes and hope that it's true that the last volume is really going to be published within the next year. 882 pages. Grade: A+
