Summary
The life story of the Great Society president. "Tormented by doubts and depression throughout his life, Lyndon Johnson could be a tornado of activity and ideas one day and deeply angry and insecure the next." He had always wanted to be president; "then his dream was fulfilled--in the most shocking and tragic way imaginable, when President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas."--Jacket
