really liked it

I enjoy biographies written about famous people by those who knew them or were related to them, so I looked forward eagerly to this book by Dwight Eisenhower's grandson. David is also a historian, so there was a lot more presidential history and analysis than I would have liked. But it was necessary to provide the background so he could fully discuss Ike's opinions and motivations in the post-presidential years. And that--especially his unlikely relationship with LBJ--was fascinating. It was also interesting to get a glimpse into this great man's relationships with his son and grandson, and how his marriage played out in the last years of his life. Overall, I would recommend this book.
