"A careful, comprehensive portrait of a complex figure, a man both eminently practical and deeply principled, who looms large over the middle of our century."–Kirkus Reviews
"Few authors have attempted a one-volume life of the idealistic but controversial Lyndon B. Johnson, and none has succeeded like Irwin Unger.. . . Highly recommended. "–Library Journal
Pulitzer Prize—winning author Irwin Unger and Debi Unger explore the enigmatic and complex Lyndon B. Johnson, as both a public and a private figure–examining his monumental achievements as well as his conflicted and turbulent relationships with his family, friends, and colleagues. LBJ reveals Johnson’s demons as well as his dreams, providing a compelling portrait of this larger-than-life figure. From the hardscrabble life of the Texas hill country to the colorful Lone Star state elections that provided his entrée into national politics to power politics in Washington, this compassionate, insightful biography traces the life, influences, and motivations of the unpredictable, charismatic, and difficult man who occupied the Oval Office during one of the nation’s most tumultuous periods.

The life story of the Great Society president. "Tormented by doubts and depression throughout his life, Lyndon Johnson could be a tornado of activity and ideas one day and deeply angry and insecure the next." He had always wanted to be president; "then his dream was fulfilled--in the most shocking and tragic way imaginable, when President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas."--Jacket.
