Reviews

  • "The story of Truman’s accession to the presidency is worthy of a Hollywood melodrama, and A J Baime’s zippy, well-judged and hugely readable book more than does it justice . . . although there are plenty of good biographies of Truman, few are as entertaining as Baime’s."

    SUNDAY TIMES
  • "An entertaining new history of Truman’s first months in office . . . filled with events that are strikingly proportionate to what the Trump administration has weathered since January."

    THE DAILY BEAST
  • "A fast-paced, well-detailed chronology of Truman's transformation from an official with little administrative responsibility into a politically astute and ultimately beloved leader . . . a warmly human portrait of an unlikely president."
