Robert Caro is a thorough researcher and has a lively writing style. Lyndon Johnson was a complex person and a consummate politician. How such a politician gets and uses power makes a compelling story. I cannot think of a book that gives a comparable insight into how the Senate works. Because the book is 1100 pages long one hesitates to take it on. Having it read by a fine reader made it easier, much easier. Grover Gardner has a pleasant voice and his insightful reading brings out the drama in the story. I looked forward to having Caro and Gardner's company as I put myself through my exercise paces. Sometimes I kept on walking the treadmill because the story was too engrossing to shut down.
