LBJ: A Life

LBJ: A Life - Debi Unger, Irwin Unger

Not reviewing this book as such, more writing a note for my own record. 

 

I am not rating this book as my reason for abandoning it is not the quality of the book but rather that I have lost interest in the subject.

 

The book is well written as far as I can tell. No idea where the authors are going with this, but the start of the book focuses on the hardships of LBJ's early life that influenced some of his political motivations. 

 

However, there is, even within the first 50 pages, much honing in on Johnson's passion for social justice, which is an assertion, or rather an assumption on Johnson's character, that will, no doubt, create cause for contention later on in his biography.
