    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.

    Abdur Abdul-Malik says: "From Powerful to Powerless"
    "Caro and Gardner are a great team!"

    If you could sum up The Passage of Power in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting researched powerful


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    LBJ. Being a Texan child when LBJ came into the presidency, my interest in what drives powerful men led me naturally to be drawn to reading about LBJ. Caro has done a excellent job of in depth research on his subject. I will always have my eye out for any book he chooses to write. Gardner just completes the package with his voice.


    Have you listened to any of Grover Gardner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. Love his voice and smooth cadence.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It's way too long for me to stay awake that long, but I have listened to this book over and over ....and will again and again...
