    Robert Caro's monumental book makes public what few outsiders have known: that Robert Moses was the single most powerful man of our time in the City and in the State of New York. And in telling the Moses story, Caro both opens up to an unprecedented degree the way in which politics really happens - the way things really get done in America's City Halls and Statehouses - and brings to light a bonanza of vital new information.

    What did you love best about The Power Broker?

    To call this a work of history does not do the author justice. The book will also be of interest to students of political science, urban planning, law and legislative drafting, finance and engineering. While the length of the book may be daunting, I found myself caught up in drama and the tragedy of the story. "The Power Broker" equals if not surpasses Caro's multiple volume biography of Lyndon Johnson-high praise indeed.
