Fantastic book! One gets the feeling that there is no other person on Earth who knows Lyndon B. Johnson like Caro does (perhaps better than Johnson did himself), and we are lucky that this knowledgeable person happens to also be one of the greatest storytellers in recent history. Caro makes Johnson truly come alive, and the reader feels a connection to both the foibles and the greatness of this epic man. An excellent read, both as a history of Johnson's life but also as a history of the Senate and the best account of Capitol Hill in the late forties and fifties.
