First Review of Robert Caro's New Book

Steve Kraske: "Maybe I'm showing my age. Maybe I'm showing the effects of too many years covering politicians. But these days, I'm deep into the fourth volume of an ongoing series of books on the 36th president, a man who died back in 1973. The really scary thing: I'm relishing every minute of it."

"Robert Caro's new book on LBJ -- The Passage of Power -- shares a trait with the first three. It is simply a stunning achievement. Enduringly fascinating, probing and popping with surprising insights, the book is a breeze of a read... Magisterial. Foundational. Groundbreaking. Pick your adjective for Caro's Lyndon Johnson. For now, I'll go with another one: simply amazing."

The book is officially out on Tuesday.
