This biography of Harry Truman goes beyond the traditional portrait of the "ordinary man" to present an extraordinary American President.

McCullough casts new light on Truman's character and motivations, and shows how he set the course of politics and policy for the next 40 years. This book won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 1993.
