it was amazing
Read in July, 2009

After reading Robert Caro's first volume in his trilogy on the life of LBJ, I wanted more. The second volume focused on the senatorial campaign between LBJ and Coke Stevenson. I couldn't imagine how a whole book (especially of this size) could focus on one campaign. It held little appeal to me. However, I loved the first volume, so I bought this one. Just like Path to Power, Means of Ascent pulls the reader in and doesn't let go. I feel like i actually traveled back in time to the late 1940's. I knew nothing about Coke Stevenson, and it was like a biography of him as well as LBJ. Highly recommended!
