    I was shocked that a presidential biography could be so good Many readers had praised the Truman book, but I thought they were exaggerating I was happy to be proven wrong.I think there are several reasons why Truman was so compelling First and most importantly was the man himself So epic was his odyssey that Truman seemed like a character in a novel Harry S Truman was born in a small town in Missouri and he grew up on a farm He was bookish, played the piano and wore glasses, which preve I was shocked that a presidential biography could be so good Many readers had praised the Truman book, but I thought they were exaggerating I was happy to be proven wrong....

    Excellent read for lining up all the threads of a great leader s life in a narrative that flows like the story from a novel Even at 1,000 pages, so much history passed through Truman s hands that major events such as the decision to bomb Hiroshima and the Korean War have to slip by with only a few pages What comes through as a thread in the whole tapestry is the fundamental decency of the man, a pragmatism typical of farmers who face diverse challenges day by day, and a core belief in fairness Excellent read for lining up all the threads of a great leader s life in a narrative that flows like the story from a novel Even at 1,000 pages, so much history passed through Truman s hands that major events such as the decision to bomb Hiroshima and the Korean War have to slip by with only a few pages What c...

    David McCullough is a master, plain and simple Who else could make a 992 page paperback biography compulsively readable I knew essentially nothing about Harry Truman before reading this biography, and now I think he might be my favorite president Truly a man of the people, who never let the highest office in the country go to his head, Truman made difficult decisions that would have crippled other men within the first four months of his presidency While not all of his policies were popular d David McCullough is a master, plain and simple Who else could make a 992 page paperba...
