it was amazing

Reading this I couldn't help but think about that part in the Big Lebowski where Maude refers the Dude to a doctor, saying, "He's a good man, and thorough." So is Robert Caro.

Caro is an excellent biographer. The portrait he paints of LBJ feels very truthful and clear. He approaches it like a good journalist. The interviews that set him off to search for the true story -- as discussed in the afterward -- paint Caro as the real hero of this tome.

Learning about the shenanigans LBJ pulled just in college politics, if he didn't have a hand in JFK's assassination then he at least pulled one of those Bush/Cheney "I never got that Aug. 6, 2001 memo" brainfarts.

I guess I'll have to wait for Vol. 4 to find out.
