    Story
    (25)

    Nearly 50 years after being sworn in as president of the United States in the wake of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Lyndon Baines Johnson remains a largely misunderstood figure. His force of personal­ity, mastery of power and the political process, and boundless appetite for social reform made him one of the towering figures of his time. But he was one of the most protean and paradoxical of presidents as well. Because of his flawed nature and inherent contradic­tions, some claimed there were as many LBJs as there were people who knew him.

    Elaine says: "LBJ's presidency was far more than the war"
    "A Struggle!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes- the story is fine and worthy of a read, but as explianed below, the sound volume on my Kindle is not sufficient.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The volume on my (new!) Kindle does not make the listening easy- primarily when there is any peripheral noise. I tried the audio out in the quite and solitude of my home where there is relatively no noise, and it was fine. But, outside- where there was traffic, or in the car on a trip while I was the passenger, there was no way I could follow the story. Amazon recommended external speakers, which were awkward and cumbersome- and not easy to find, without trying several different types. I hope they will be addressing this issue with an appropriate after market sound amplifier or improvement with the Kindle sound. I might mention that there is nothing wrong with my hearing!


    Was Indomitable Will worth the listening time?

    Yes- with the appropriate accomdations
