Those that want a Christian themed book.
He wrote it for his target audience. I just didn't realize it was so religious when I bought it. That's my fault. Not his.
Whatever you think about him personally, LBJ demonstrated a clear talent for getting others to do his bidding and eventually placing himself in power positions. For that reason alone, this book is a fascinating read for anyone that is interested in how power accumulates with one person and not another.
Beyond the story the book presents, Caro does a great job putting together this narrative, and Gardner is a skillful narrated.
I most definitely recommend this book. It's an interesting story, and should you want to, you can learn something about the path to power.
This book gives you similar information to what you get in other soon-to-be dad books. Unfortunately, this book seems intended for soon-to-be dads that are content with statements like, "It's just a woman thing," or, "Don't worry because you'll never understand." It's not that it's offensive necessarily, but rather that it's so simplistic and incurious that it's really not worth reading when you compare it to similar books.
The depth of the narrative
He has a rich voice that sounds like it fits perfectly with this story.
Prebble, yes. Lansing, no.
No. Shackleton's story is really quite amazing, but I felt that Alfred Lansing mostly just conveyed the facts. Honestly, there was so little scene setting or description of the immediate environment that I had little, to no, idea of what things actually looked like until I went online to find pictures.
I'm split on this. Maybe.
