it was ok
bookshelves: biography, american-history
Read in January, 2000

I really wanted to like this but found it very difficult to complete. Truman was a fine man, a President with morals and ethics who saw his role as serving the people who elected him. McCullogh is meticulous in his detail and in his documentation. My issue was the style of writing. I just could not stay engaged and found myself skipping forward. For me, that is always a bad sign.

Arminius I read this book in the 1990's and came away very impressed with Truman. I do not recall McCullough's particular style but I guess we all read in our own way.
