LBJ: Architect of American Ambition
This is a great biography, and a long one – but an interesting read.
I am at the point now where he is running for Congress, after the sudden death of one of its Senators – and working very hard to make a name for himself (he was virtually unknown in much of Texas).
LBJ was a hard worker – a very hard worker – and determined to make himself, and America, powerful.
He succeeded internally, with his Civil Rights – but failed externally, in Vietnam.
