    A “deft researcher and a first-rate storyteller” (Washington Post), Michael Beschloss is the author of nine books on the American presidency, including two volumes on Lyndon Johnson, the bestsellers Presidential Courage and The Conquerors, and works about FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy. The NBC News Presidential Historian, his many honors include an Emmy Award and the state of Illinois’s Order of Lincoln.
