In this dynamic and revealing memoir, George Reedy, long-time Johnson aide and former presidential press secretary, draws a clear picture of “the two faces of Lyndon B. Johnson — one that of a magnificent, inspiring leader; the other that of an insufferable bastard.” He vividly recalls Johnson’s womanizing, his paranoid feelings toward Robert Kennedy, and the manipulative games he played. He describes the unparalleled competence as a political tactician that kept Johnson’s staff in awe, as well as the boorish personality — “He was a bully, sadist, lout, and egotist” that kept Reedy constantly on the verge of resignation.
