There are so many conspiracy theories about the death of JFK but this appears to me to be wholly convincing. LBJ, comes across as a thoroughly unpleasant man prepared to lie to cover his own tracks and prepared to bring down his best friends. As the author asks - how did a man who came to Washington DC with only one suit die worth $14m when all he had was a congressional salary? A tale of corruption throughout the American Establishment, it does not even touch on the damage Johnson did to his country through escalation of the Vietnam war.
A really good read for anyone interested in Congressional history in the second half of the 20th C. My parents used to say to me that everyone can remember where they were when JFK was assassinated, in the same way that everyone of my generation can remember where they were when the Twin Towers were hit. This book unmasks one of the least savory politicians every to become President of the USA.
I am always interested in biographies of political figures - from all parts of the world. I found this one written to engage the reader and enjoyed it all the more for that. Some biographies can be rather dry to read - but this slipped easily into afternoon reading.
I never rely on one biography of a person - but this was an excellent start to reading more about LBJ - and corroborated some other mentions I've read of him in other Kennedy family biographies.
I would recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in the politicians who figure so largely in World History on the global scale.
