"One of the Best Books of the Year." -- Washington Post "An engaging account ... Well-researched." -- Wall Street Journal "Now, this is what's called a road trip." -- In Transit , New York Times travel blog "Matthew Algeo recalls [my grandparents'] memorable trip beautifully and with the sense of humor it deserves." -- Clifton Truman Daniel , grandson of Harry S. Truman " Harry Truman's Excellent Adventure resonates Aaron Copeland's 'Fanfare for the Common Man'--brassy, bright, energetic, brief and declaratively American." -- Washington Times "Enlivened by Algeo"s endeavors to see the places where Truman stopped, this is an engaging historical sidebar." -- Booklist Online "Algeo chronicles this unlikely excursion in great and wonderful detail... [An] enchanting glimpse into a much simpler age." -- Library Journal "An absolutely wonderful book." -- Virginian-Pilot
