Stunning, Compelling and Relevent
Long can be easily called the father of the OWS movement. It's somewhat surprising that his name doesn't come up more often. His methods, though, raise thorny questions about how far one can push ethical boundaries to achieve fairness for all. Say what you will about the man, he had the courage of his convictions lacking in politics today. To stand up to Roosevelt because his agenda wasn't radical enough, that took, let's say, testicular fortitude.
The greatest praise I can give this book is that I finished at 32hr book in 10 days which is pretty much a record for me.
The only carp I have - Wiener's accents border on offensively clownish at times. I got used to the Cajun drawls but the Black and Hispanic made me wince.

Best bio I ever read, even better than Chernow.
Amazing depth of research, superb text and performance, and one of the five or six greatest political figures, and the most brilliant, in all American history. Long's brain makes Hamilton's look like nothing. Best book I ever heard.
