    The Passage of Power follows Lyndon Johnson through both the most frustrating and the most triumphant periods of his career - 1958 to 1964. It is a time that would see him trade the extraordinary power he had created for himself as Senate Majority Leader for what became the wretched powerlessness of a Vice President in an administration that disdained and distrusted him. Yet it was, as well, the time in which the presidency, the goal he had always pursued, would be thrust upon him in the moment it took an assassin’s bullet to reach its mark.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Passage of Power to be better than the print version?

    What can I say. I have listened to each part of this wonderful history series. Caro is brilliant in his scholarship and story telling.

    Story

    A fascinating account of an Army captain's unusual path through some of the most legendary seats of learning straight into a brutal fight with Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, The Unforgiving Minute is, above all, an unforgettable portrait of a young soldier grappling with the weight of his hard-earned knowledge while coming to grips with becoming a man.

    Story
    Would you listen to The Unforgiving Minute again? Why?

    Because it tells how a member of a current generation of Twentysomethings makes choices that define them.


    What does Todd McLaren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He makes it feel like a personal narrative.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His first time dealing with the death of soldiers under his command.


    Any additional comments?

    This was required for my rising freshman at the University of Kentucky to read. I am glad I experienced it.
