Book by McCullough David


"McCullough takes us on a beautifully guided tour of recent history--a journey that is as much a celebration of American experience as it is a captivating portrait of the ordinary 'man from Missouri' who became an extraordinary figure in the Cold War world. Keeping Truman himself always vividly in the foreground, Mr. McCullough has written a stirring, masterly, thoroughly absorbing book." --Jean Strouse, author of" Alice James: A Biography " "Superbly researched and carried forward by McCullough's narrative drive, Truman is endlessly readable. The Harry we were all wild about is re-created exactly as Harry was--feisty, preposterous, decisive, tireless, outrageous, but always honorable, always courageous, always guided by his inner gyroscope of conscience and character." --William Manchester, author of "William Spencer Churchill: The Last Lion " "This is the biography of President Harry S. Truman against which not only all other Truman biographies but probably all other presidential biographies will be measured. It is comprehensive, well reasoned, insightful and yet elegantly simple. It is written with a love for the subject that is contagious." --Steve Weinberg, "The Kansas City Star " "Truman is biography as good as it gets, as absorbing and readable as it is voluminous. McCullough writes like a novelist, digs like a zealous reporter and puts things in perspective like the superb historian he is." --Lorenzo Carcaterra, "People "magazine "Exemplary and riveting.... The book is like a comfortable Victorian three-decker novel. There are two plots, a hero and heroine, and a glittering cast of characters ranging from Dean Acheson, Churchill and General Marshall to the Pendergasts and General MacArthur, as well as a splendid collection of Shakespearean clowns.... McCullough's book will stand for a long time as the outstanding analysis of an extremely important subject: the greatness of Truman, and its role as an exogenous 'cause' in the history of his time." --Eugene V. Rostow, "Times Literary Supplement, London" "An impressive and valuable study of Truman, worthy of its subject." --C. Vann Woodward, "The New York Review" "McCullough is a master storyteller whose considerable narrative skills have been put to exquisite use in re-creating the life and times of America's 33rd president." --Robert Dallek, "Los Angeles Times Book Review " "Perhaps the highest tribute one can pay a biographer is to say that through him one comes to know his subject almost as though in person. In fostering the reader's acquaintance with Harry Truman, not once does McCullough get in the way. This is in every respect a splendid work." --Myron A. Marty, "St. Louis Post-Dispatch " "Since I've been in national politics, whenever I've been asked who my favorite political leader of the century is, I have always said Harry Truman.... David McCullough has always been a favorite of mine. The Truman biography is outstanding." --Jimmy Carter, "The Boston Phoenix " "McCullough's marvelous feel for history is based on an appreciation of colorful tales and an insight into personalities. In this compelling saga of America's greatest common-man president, McCullough adds luster to an old-fashioned historical approach . . . the sweeping narrative, filled with telling details and an appreciation of the role individuals play in shaping the world." --Walter Isaacson", Time"""
