Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This is the Washington Post's competition with the Times book, above. It costs less, but readers get less. While the Times book is a keeper for the ages, this one has a cheesier look to its graphics and no contribution from the newspaper's considerable experts similar to what the Times offers in its volume. Apart from five pages by David Maraniss after an all-too-brief foreword by Ben Bradlee, there is little text here other than photo captions. A disappointment.
