MEDIA REVIEWS

"Thoroughly researched, carefully analytical . . .this outstanding biography is rewarding reading." (Frank Freidel, "The Washington Post Book World")

"An indefatigable and a keen student of the period in which his protagonist lived and died, the author has brought both compassion and criticism to his exacting assignment. As one who was an intimate friend, adviser, and companion of 'Young Bob, ' I find the author s criticisms of the man and his policies cogent, creative, and constructive. Maney has painted 'Young Bob' warts and all, which is precisely the way he would have wanted it done." (Morris H. Rubin, "The Progressive")"
