Product description

Review

''In its range and research, it is the book to end all books on Mr. Kissinger. For his aficionados, it makes compulsive reading; for students of his years of influence on United States foreign policy, it is compulsory.'' --New York Times

''The fullest account of Kissinger's life and career to date, other than for his memoirs . . . A spooky, engrossing portrait of the only European-style realist ever to guide US foreign policy.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Confirms Kissinger's place as one of the great international players and takes him down a peg as well . . . Kissinger will rave about the parts he likes and rage about the rest . . . This makes for compulsive reading.'' --Peter Jennings

''[A] wonderful, entertaining, definitive biography.'' --Los Angeles Times Book Review

''Meticulously researched, intelligent, and fair . . . A book full of insights.'' --Washington Post

''A solidly researched, richly textured, and extremely readable account of a man in dramatic times who seemed bigger than life.'' --Boston Sunday Globe

''Isaacson . . . has produced much more than another unauthorized biography . . . While there are other excellent Kissinger biographies, this work is the best to date on Henry K. Superstar.'' --Library Journal

''A critical but resolutely objective and utterly fascinating biography of the guileful, egocentric geopolitical scientist who became America's most celebrated secretary of state . . . An authoritative and comprehensive account . . . An evenhanded, warts-and-all portrait of a larger-than-life individual who has left his mark behind.'' --Kirkus Reviews
