    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.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I listened to Grover Gardner's narration of more than 120 hours of Robert A. Caro's LBJ: "Passage of Power" and "Master of the Senate." I found them mesmerizing, enlightening and at times horrifying--LBJ's obsession with his not-so-private parts really creeped me out.

    Minutes into "The Power Broker" I felt agiatiated, anxious. The narrator was killing my interest in Caro's LBJ. I went back to Audible to look for another copy of the book with Gardner narrating, but no such luck. Unless I'm stuck in a room with no options for entertainment save this audiobook, I won't likely hear how LBJ's story began.


    What could Robert A. Caro have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Robert A. Caro could have chosen a better narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    By reading it out loud and recording it for public consumption.


    Any additional comments?

    Please never suggest a book by this narrator; Amazon, I'm talking to you.
