MEDIA REVIEWS

"I enjoyed Ken Hechler's book very much. It brought back a lot of wonderful memories."--Margaret Truman


"Ken Hechler has written a fascinating book about a fascinating man. At the center stands President Harry Truman--a feisty, plain-spoken man who cared deeply about his country. President Truman's character, ably described by Mr. Hechler, helps fill the book with sparkle and human interest."--Former Senator William Proxmire


"The 33rd President who emerges from Mr. Hechler's pages is a loving husband and father, a man loyal to old friends even when it led to political embarrassment, an ardent history buff, a relaxed friend when vacationing with his staff. [This book] has some interesting things to say about the firing of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, the 'Korean incident' and the rage of McCarthyism. Much of this has been printed before in other contexts . . . but politics and history buffs will find Mr. Hechler's version warm and welcome."--"New York Times Book Review"


"An enthralling portrait of a most uncommon 'common' man. Harry Truman's wit, vision and robust common sense shine through the stories Ken Hechler has assembled so artfully and told so well."--Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale
