Review:

Praise for Paul Johnson:

"Johnson brings to his subject a vitality that can't be matched."
"--The New York Times"

"Frequently surprises, even startles, us with new views of past events and fresh looks at the characters of the chief world movers and shakers in politics, the military, economics, science, religion, and philosophy."
"--The Wall Street Journal"

"Johnson is a brilliant writer, fluent, precise, crisp, and in full command of the music of words."
"--The Baltimore Sun"

"His zesty, irreverent narratives teach more history to more people than all the post-modernist theorists, highbrow critics, and dons put together."
"--Times Literary Supplement"

Praise for "Eisenhower" and Paul Johnson:

"An ideal primer for novices or those looking to brush up on America's thirty-fourth president . . . a satisfying snapshot of a life dedicated to public service."
"-- Booklist"

"Accomplished historian and biographer Johnson . . . covers all the major facets of Eisenhower's career, beginning with his boyhood in rural Kansas and ending with his tenure as president of the United States . . . with an emphasis on his personality and character, including his flair for public relations. Johnson's contribution will serve as a great introduction to 'Ike' the man."
"--Publishers Weekly"

"[An] admiring, opinionated account by veteran British journalist and historian Johnson. Johnson astutely points out that Eisenhower enjoyed being president since, unlike generals Washington, Jackson and Grant, his best qualities were not those of a warrior but a staff officer: efficiency, administration, economy and flexibility."
"--Kirkus " "Johnson brings to his subject a vitality that can't be matched."
"--The New York Times"

"Frequently surprises, even startles, us with new views of past events and fresh looks at the characters of the chief world movers and shakers in politics, the military, economics, science, religion, and philosophy."

-- "USA Today," a "New and Noteworthy" pick
"Johnson deftly sketches Eisenhower's political profile . . . Inviting."

"-- The Boston Globe"
"[E]ssential rather than exhaustive. Johnson gives the basic facts, but always with the aim of illustrating a salient point about Ike's character. . . . [Eisenhower] looks better than ever."
"-- The Denver Post"
"An ideal primer for novices or those looking to brush up on America's thirty-fourth president . . . a satisfying snapshot of a life dedicated to public service."
