Would you listen to Master of the Senate - The Years of Lyndon Johnson, Volume III (Part 2 of a 3-Part Recording) again? Why?
The book is brilliant, the story fascinating and the narration excellent.
Any additional comments?
But the editing of the second part of the three-part audio book is surprisingly poor. On more than a dozen occasions bits of text are repeated as the audio track suddenly doubles back by a few words or even a few sentences. The first part was edited professionally without such errors. It looks like by the time of the second part time or budget was too short to avoid repeatedly making a basic mistake.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Yes - Two reasons: 1) Most obviously, you can't listen to volume 3 without volume 2 and after volume 1, you can't help but to want more and more of this.
How could the performance have been better?
There were so many repeats that at least once every 20 minutes it happened. There were other very odd starts and stops and perhaps part of a chapter missing. All in all, I don't know that I think it is that big of a deal - however, Grover Gardner is such an incredible narrator and commands such incredible admiration for his narration, the constant repeats and breaks are all the more shocking. Seems as though Vol. II was rushed in order that Volume 3 could be released. I will note that in Vol I and III Gardner was and then returned to his near flawless command of the story. However, Vol. II is the worst recording (in terms of repeats and cut-offs) I've ever listened to of the nearly 50 audio books over the past two years.

I love Caro's series. This segment has a few glitches, it repeats itself many times throughout the recording,it skips back 10 seconds. I also think it is not fair that the first book is one segment, the second book is one segment, and the third book is three segments. The first book is 40 hrs. Why must the third book be broken into three 15 hr sections?
