I was excited for this book when I heard it was released. I haven't been able to commit to Caro's other works but was looking forward to a summary of his insights in his own words. Unfortunately, it is more a very very brief summary of Caro's history writing the books. It was interesting to hear about his experience, but it was not long enough to hear enough to get much out of his experience researching the books nor does it really spend much time on his subjects, Moses and Johnson.
