“‘A tall, gangling youth, humiliated and ridiculed during an impoverished boyhood in a tiny, isolated Texas Hill Country town,’ as Caro describes him in the biography’s second volume, Johnson began his climb in college, shamelessly cultivating relationships with anyone who could help him get ahead.” -- H.W. Brands, “Johnson the Power Broker”
