Indomitable Will

By Mark K. Updegrove

I have read a lot of LBJ. Mark Updegrove's Indomitable Will: LBJ in the Presidency has fast become one of my favorites. What sets this book apart is the Updegrove's generous use of the voices of LBJ's contemporaries. In this sense, the author gives us his interpretation but he welcomes many more people into his conversation. I loved that feature as I did his book. Fair. Fascinating. Fast Paced. After Caro, I'd read Indomitable Will . . . maybe I'd even read it first.
