    I agree with another reviewer who said this was one book that works better as an audio book than in print - for anyone interested in this period of American history, the American presidency and/or LBJ this is well worth listening to. The original tapes are fascinating and Beschloss' commentary is generally good. I highly recommend this audiobook.

    Taking Charge brings you into the room with an American political legend, still hated and revered a quarter century after his death. We hear Lyndon Johnson as he schemes and blusters, rewards and punishes, and reveals a bedrock core of unshakable political beliefs.

    As for the content of this speech, President Bush clarified some of his plans for Iraq and again stated our mission. He presented a clear course and a logical plan.

    In case you weren't aware, the review section of Audible is to review the selected audio...NOT push your political views. I am well aware there are 2 sides to every issue...but sometimes I would just like to get an idea of the content of a particular speech or book rather than be subjected to more liberal ranting...usually from people who have not listened to or read the selected piece. Take your ravings to blogs and let the rest of us read and review.
