Balanced account of Harry Truman good and bad. It helped me to better understand some of the decisions he made and increased my respect for him as a person.
loved it. very informative and historically accurate. read by an expert who conveyed the feeling of the book
what an amazing man in such a terrible time in history. I am a conservative that disagrees with Truman's politics but absolutely loves the man. Wow!
What a wonderful experience to listen to this book. It brought back many memories, and explained so much that I had not understood. I wish all politicians would have the honor to read this amazing book.
David McCullough is an excellent researcher. His writing style puts me in that time era of his book. I also really enjoy the audiobook as well. Nelson Runger is a perfect choice as narrator. Love reading and listening together. It is like hearing my Grandfather read the book to me. Excellent learning.
David McCullough has an uncanny ability to bring historical events to life. You feel like you know the characters, and get swept up in the drama and tension. Despite my lack of prior interest in presidential biographies, I found this book fascinating. The narration was also great: pleasant, not distracting, and with distinct accents for each character. Highly recommended.
Although the story is a bit long, it is more than worth the trouble. Truman was a remarkable man and a great president. This book helps to paint a picture that school taught history does not.
