Beethoven: The Universal Composer
by Edmund Morris
Edmund Morris, the author of three bestselling presidential biographies and a lifelong devotee of Beethoven, brings the great composer to life as a man of astonishing complexity and overpowering intelligence. With sensitivity and insight, Morris illuminates Beethoven's life, including his interactions with the women he privately lusted for but held at bay, and his work, whose grandeur and beauty were conceived "on the other side of silence."

by Mikhail S. Gorbachev
The leader who Morris considers to be much like Theodore Roosevelt is actually a Russian. Morris told NPR, "[Roosevelt is] the fastest-moving human being I've ever studied, with the single exception of Mikhail Gorbachev, who, oddly enough, reminded me a lot of T.R. Gorby had this enormous physical quickness, which I do know that Theodore Roosevelt had."
