I appreciate the writer's well researched efforts of this highly important relationship between two giants of the twentieth century.
The unexpected behavior of Nixon coming across as a seemingly poor junior office while the commander-in-chief was always "The General". Not exactly a good working relationship nor did they really develop a close friendship.
Nixon. That guy is so Shakespearean in depth of character along with the success he attained while feeling so inferior to Eisenhower.
Yes, this book was highly interesting. Frank's efforts are clearly apparent while reading this superlative volume.
Poor Pat must have lived a miserable life. Disliking political campaigns as she did and living a fairly isolated life from her husband.
Scott's brutal honesty.
Liberace because he was so damn bizarre.
HBO and Michael Douglas did a great job as it is. Michael Douglas taking Matt Damon is plenty hysterical considering Michael's history.
Yes, I would. Jimmy is an interesting person and for me as a sports fan his love of tennis shows.
His harsh childhood !
If possible I would have enjoyed doing so.
I enjoyed his lack of commentary regarding Andre Agassi since he made a big point in his book we all understand he believes Connors is a big jerk.
I was moved by his frankness regarding his close friendships with Vitas Gerulaitis and Ilie Nastase.
He does love tennis.
The story. Without a doubt this is a superb story. For all of our sakes I hope this is a completely impossible reality.
I liked how several figures involved in LBJ's life were seriously involved with the presidential plot.
Sure why not? It was an enjoyable read and would be interested in reading more about the subject and from the author. I'm highly surprised the Johnson family has not taken this guy to court.
Billy Sol Estes was a crooked person. Did he help with the presidential assassination? Or did Bobby Kennedy push Johnson over the edge? Or was LBJ so conniving and so crooked he is personally responsible for several murders in Texas -----including the murder of President Kennedy?
Yes, I would recommend this to my music lover friends.
Possibly Don Felder's Heaven and Hell. Both are eye opening regarding the music business and insight into bands.
While intending to be flattering a good voice should not add or subtract from the story.
Open Your Eyes Wide
Very impressed with Glen Campbell as a musician and with his ambition for success.
I must say Brian Wilson is every bit the nut I would have expected. Pet Sounds did him in. Or did his father?
This audio is good, but print is always superior.
Several. Possibly threatening George Harrison with a gun?
He did a good job.
Thankful that Phil Spector is NOT involved in my life.
LBJ is a charismatic character whether he is liked or not.
The deep hatred between Lyndon Johnson and Bobby Kennedy was shocking in its depth, intensity, and bitterness.
Several scenes at the Los Angeles Democratic convention in 1960 between then Presidential nominee John Kennedy and Johnson. Kennedy wanted Johnson whether to help carry Texas or simply to have Johnson removed as senate majority leader. Was the choice Kennedy's dad? Bobby Kennedy was appalled by the choice trying his best to removed Colonel Cornpone from the ticket.
Yes, if it were at all possible I would have.
Robert Caro has me anxiously awaiting the future LBJ vollume(s).
Ed did make this all the more entertaining.
Without a doubt Johnny Carson. Carson the shy comic star from a perspective fans would never know.
I enjoyed Ed being Ed offering the insight only he could regarding Johnny.
Any Tonight Show fan will enjoy McMahon's memories.
Langella has written a good entertaining book. Mr Langella does a good job presenting a positive presentation of the many celebrities he has met in his life. A really good celebrity memoir more interested in the people Mr Langella has met in his life.
I enjoyed Frank's celebrity chapters as opposed to chapter and boring chapter on the writer's point of view as an actor and celebrity.
Mr Langella brings his personal interest and confident voice in reading his own book.
Yes, this is a book I wanted to listen entirely in one sitting.
Frank Langella's personal stories and commentaries regarding Bette Davis, Elizabeth Taylor, Charlton Heston, Jackie Kennedy, and Raul Julia were particularly fascinating. Very nice of Mr Langella's admission of Raul Julia as his boyfriend. His commentaries were so honest and enjoyable. I feel as if Mr Langella has been a life long friend.
