Books Info:

Flawed Giant free pdf In this final volume of his biography of Lyndon Johnson, Dallek takes us through Johnson's tumultuous years in the White House, his accomplishments there, and the tragic war that would be his downfall. In these pages Johnson emerges as a character of almost Shakespearean dimensions, a man riddled with contradictions, a man of intensity and anguished insecurity, of grandiose ambition and grave self-doubt, a man who was brilliant, crude, intimidating, compassionate, overbearing and driven, described as "A tornado in pants." Drawing on hundreds of newly released tapes and extensive interviews with those closest to LBJ - including insights from Ladybird and his press secretary Bill Moyers - Dallek takes us behind the scenes to give us a portrait of Johnson.
