    A hundred years after his inauguration, Woodrow Wilson still stands as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, and one of the most enigmatic. And now, after more than a decade of research and writing, Pulitzer Prize-winning author A. Scott Berg has completed Wilson - the most personal and penetrating biography ever written about the 28th President. This is not just Wilson the icon - but Wilson the man.

    Jean says: "A complex man"
    "An inspiring narrative, an insipid narration"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Wilson to be better than the print version?

    I would, if it was narrated by a different narrator.


    What other book might you compare Wilson to and why?

    Insofar as it is a biography of an American President, I compare this book to John Adams by David McCullough, Thomas Jefferson by John Meacham, Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin, and Founding Rivals by Chris De Rose.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeremy Bobb?

    George Guidall, Simon Prebble, Chrisotpher Hurt, Suzanne Toren, Edward Hermann, Nelson Runger, or George Wilson.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I have to think about this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Although the narration is dull, monotone, and tedious, the biography is well-written and wonderful. It is a must-read for anyone even mildly interested in the United State's presidential history.
