Though about half this book contains previously published material (a shortcoming for some critics), it is all entirely new to me. I bought a copy of The Power Broker many years ago but only ever got about 130 pages in before stopping. After reading the reprint of Caro's 1998 New Yorker article on the writing of that book and the interviewing of Robert Moses, I am eager to pick it up and start over. I can say a similar thing about The Years of Lyndon Johnson. I bought the first two volumes from a discount bin and was hooked. Before I read the third volume I re-read the first two, and did the same for volume four. I expect I will do the same for volume five, assuming Caro, now 84, lives to finish it.

an excellent read- for fans of Robert Caro-- you get to know the author and relate to his struggles, passionate efforts as an author.
A short book one can read thru in a day if time permits.
Disclaimer:
Admire him very very much for his very detailed and fact-based as is tales/biographies on his only subjects Lyndon Johnson ( 4 books + 1 in the works) and Robert Moses (1 book).

** listened to the audio book **
This is unbelievably fantastic to me. Yes, I’m a huge Caro fan.
That voice! Granted, he’s 83 and it’s NOT as strong, but he still has it. And boy can he tell a story. Let’s hope he lives to finish Book 5 on LBJ, then his official autobiography.
I want more Behind The Scenes story telling...
Discovering there are 32 million pieces of paper at the LBJ library.
Why don’t you do a bio on Napoleon?
Hunting down the man who rigged LBJ’s election.
How he finally met his brethren at the NYC library.
