Review: Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream: The Most Revealing Portrait of a President and Presidential Power Ever Written

User Review  - Jackie - Goodreads

Really a 3 1/2stars. I enjoyed reading this book because Goodwin is such a good writer, but this was not her best. It was her 1st book & she's definitely gotten better. Johnson was a fascinating man. If you like history, Goodwin is one of the best. If she writes it, I will read it. Read full review
