Return to Phil's Picks

All four volumes for Robert Caro’s Biography of Lyndon Johnson


  • The Path to Power (Random House, 1982)
  • Means of Ascent (Random House, 1990)
  • Master of the Senate (Random House, 2002)
  • The Passage of Power (Random House, 2013)

I know it sounds crazy, but I roared through the 3000 page opus at warp speed. LBJ is a character of Shakespearean proportions and the details of Texas politics make Putin’s Russia sound like Disneyland.
