"Lately, I have been using that time to achieve a goal I've set for myself of reading all of Shakespeare's plays," he says. "It's a way of immersing oneself in a human world and thereby becoming more human oneself."
"Even Shakespeare's lesser-known plays, such as these, contain some of the best writing in the English language and the 'invention' of characters that simply leap out of the page."
"For anybody interested in the exercise of political power I would strongly recommend the works of Caro. Besides illustrating the old adage that 'power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,' this book is a virtual handbook on the accretion and use of political power."
"Again the accumulation and use of power is the central focus of the work. But the book also contains an extraordinarily moving description of rural life in the Texas hill country prior to the time that Roosevelt's rural electrification policy came to Texas. The second volume details Johnson's invention of modern campaign techniques and how his first election to the U.S. Senate was the result of election fraud."
"It was Morris's biography of Theodore Roosevelt that led to his being selected to write the authorized biography of Ronald Reagan. The Roosevelt volume reads better than most novels and depicts a person worthy of appearing as a character in one of Shakespeare's plays."
"Professor Donald shows how deftly Lincoln worked with his contentious cabinet and managed to hold the Northern coalition together in support of the war effort."
"Although Ellis is an admirer of Jefferson, he does not blink at taking up such difficult matters as Jefferson's racism, his shilly-shallying over slavery, and his relationship with Sally Hemings. In the book, Ellis argues against Jefferson's having had a sexual relationship with Hemings, but when DNA analysis supported this theory, Ellis was quick to acknowledge that the conclusion in his book was incorrect."
"Sereny's book provides a fascinating insight into the workings of the hierarchy of the Nazi regime. But it goes further to depict how a talented and charming young man, step-by-step, fell 'in love' with Hitler, rose to power, and, despite being at the pinnacle of the Nazi regime, side-stepped the responsibility of learning--when he easily could have--about Hitler's systematic extermination of the Jewish population of Europe and Russia."
