Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic This is an excellent book on the 1964 Presidential election, surprisingly balanced given the author's obvious (and correct) belief that LBJ was the better candidate. My only complaint is the LBJ barely shows up for the first half of the book, which is all Goldwater and Rockefeller. Still, and excellent, informative and prescient read.
