What We're Reading

This week Mike is recommending "The Years of Lyndon Johnson - Book One: The Path to Power" by Robert Caro  

"This epic first volume details Lyndon Johnson's early life and the beginning of his career. Author Robert Caro retraces the future President's beginnings in poverty, his family's complex background, and his first political experiences.  Due to Caro's extensive research, this book also presents a comprehensive overview of life in rural Texas, as well as entire chapters on key figures in LBJ's life. 'The Path to Power' is not simply a first volume of a biography, it is a complex study of a man and his harsh environment, who learned that if you 'do everything,' you will win."
