"A notable achievement. White has written a fascinating story of a fascinating campaign." -- Time magazine "No book that I know of has caught the heartbeat of a campaign as strikingly as Theodore White has done in The Making of the President 1960." -- New York Times "A masterpiece . . . full of deep insights into political power in America and how our democracy works in choosing the President. It gripped me from beginning to end as very few books have." -- William L. Shirer "More than a fascinating account of how one man succeeded in reaching the White House, while other failed; it is a graduate lesson in the rough, relentless, subtle and devious workings of American politics. It is a magnificent job of reporting, but it is also history." -- Saturday Review "[White] revolutionized the art of political reporting." -- William F. Buckley
