Edward Longacre's biography of Grant is enjoyable and interesting. Langacre describes Grant's early life, his life at West Point, his first taste of battle during the war with Mexico, his family life, and his life during the Civil War. The book does not cover Grant's life as president of the US, deferring to other authors.
Longacre, as with any well-covered famous person from history, tends to argue with historians and biographers whom you may or may not have read. This can be annoying if you are reading this book as a first introduction to Grant, or if you simply don't care for the arguments of academics.
Jonathan Walker's narration is slow and precise - perfect for listening to in the car. I recommend this book.
