Reviews


"To read Robert Dallek's new book on LBJ is to be transported back to the era that he helped make so angry and turbulent....Flawed Giant captures in unforgiving detail a president whose flaws were tragically larger than life."--Chicago Tribune


"Dallek lets Johnson speak for himself, and no writer could create a more colorful, entertaining, inspiring, eccentric, or troubling character."--The Boston Sunday Globe


"Avoiding the demonology that has marred other accounts of this fascinating man, Dallek shows not only his failures and his excesses but also his gargantuan accomplishments and subtle mind. Here is a Johnson without tears or cheers but in a clear, steady light."--Washington Post Book World


"An historical biographical tour de force."--Richmond Times-Dispatch


"Poised, scholarly, and readable."--The New Yorker
