Book review: Woodrow Wilson

I was fortunate to listen to Woodrow Wilson by Louis Auchincloss during a few car trips to Palo Alto.

Woodrow Wilson is a very complicated historical figure — and it is hard to read this book and still have a very flattering opinion of him. Though many neocons today are often called “Wilsonian”, I don’t think that accurately expresses Wilson’s philosophy.

Summation: it is certainly worth at least listening to this book on tape.
