D details the ways he goes about planning and composing his books Caro recalls the moments at which he came to understand that he wanted to write not just about the men who wielded power but about the people and the politics that were shaped by that power And he talks about the importance to him of the writing itself of how he tries to infuse it with a sense of place and mood to bring characters and situations to life on the page Taken together these reminiscences–some previously published some written expressly for this book–bring into focus the passion the wry self deprecation and the integrity with which this brilliant historian has always approached his wor

Ca Turn every page Never assume anyhting Turn every goddamned page Alan Hathaway uoted by Robert Caro Working Researching Interviewing Writing It is weird to give a Caro book only four stars I've read nearly everyhing except the big Whale The Power Broker Robert Moses and the Fall of New York he's writing and it seems nearly perfect He is one of my favorite writers of nonfiction ever His fanatacism to his craft is incredible His old school approach to research and writing is fantastic But still I only gave this book four stars much for the same reason why I gave McPhee only four stars for his writing book Draft No 4 On the Writing Process I've read too much of it before A lot of both books were cobbled together from other pieces and previous books for example On Power So part of my four star review is due to my hunger and expectations for Caro I

CaRobert Caro is one of my favorite biographers In this book Caro discusses his life but mostly provides information about how he and his wife do research about a topic The number one take away I got from this book is do not hurry take your time and do it right He tells of hours in the archives reading other people’s work newspaper articles diaries and letters He also tells of traveling around doing interviews with people He spent years doing the research gathering material organizing it and then analyzing it The last thing he does is the writingA lot of the information in this book can be found in his book “On Power” and in his other essays etc I think he put together a collection of his shorter essays that discuss his writing and research methods and stuck them into this book For those of us who have read most of his writings this is all old material except for some pearls p

CaI think Caro is the greatest living writer out there may he live forever or until he finishes the last Johnson book A lot of material in this book is old stuff include in his other books or periodicals but it's still wonderful to have it compiled in one place My favorite essay in this collection was the one about importance of place where he talks about how living in the Hill Country and experiencing the barrenness of the land helped him understand Johnson's superhuman vote counting abilities and how Caro recreated his walk to the Hill at the exact time he was doing it so that he could understand why he would break out into a run every day on his way to work I also love his work because it is human he talks about how he needed to talk to the people who were hurt by Robert Moses for example to tell the full story Now please for the love of God Robert Caro stop writing memoirs and GET BACK TO WORK

CaLately a daily ritual for me is to offer a simple silent supplication or prayer for two people of advanced age – two people I have never met and whom I am sure I never will meet I pray that they will live several years in good health with continued mental acuity Robert Caro is one of these people At age 83 he is still a few years from finishing the fifth and final book in his series The Years of Lyndon Johnson Eight to twelve years elapsed between the publication of each of the first four books in the series due to Caro's insistence on time consuming meticulous research and constant re organizing and re writing of the lengthy volumes But the results are all masterpieces I am currently than halfway through Master of the Senate the Pulitzer prize winning third book in the seriesCaro's books are so much than mere biographies They tell the story of power in America – how power is won how it has been wielded how it has been maintained and lost and how it has affe

Ca Working by Robert Caro is a riveting book that basically highlights his career of bringing us no less than two Pulitzer prize winning biographies among his most commendable body of work Caro was intrigued by power and his first biography was that of Robert Moses who essentially built New York City His next endeavor was the extensive biographies of Lyndon Baines Johnson I must say that I have a lot of very dear historians that I have been drawn to over the years but this biographer stands apart I was so struck with the early years of Lyndon Baines Johnson and the Texas Hill country of not only his roots but that of his family and ancestors Caro realizing that he would never be able to understand Johnson's personality nor what drove him unless he lived in the Texas Hill Country which he and his wife did for three years; and this is how you develop a sense of place It was in those first several chapters of the first book about President Lyndon Johns

CaHaving discovered the wonders of Robert A Caro a number of years ago I vowed that I would read all that he had written Beginning with his work on Robert Moses I was pulled into the intricate world of a biography that sought not only to explore the world of this powerful urban planner within New York State’s political realm but also the personal aspects that drove the man to shape such change While the book was massive Caro’s writing made it come to life for me Thereafter I began the colossal task of reading and synthesising the multi volume biography of Lyndon Baines Johnson LBJ—with the fifth and final volume yet to come—in which Caro made the rise from rags to the White House appear monumental for a man who turned politicking into a new art form Stunned at the superior nature of the writing I wait impatiently for the aforementioned final volume of the LBJ biography I saw th
