John William McCormack: A Political Biography - Garrison Nelson

I can't recall the last time I had such mixed feelings while reading a book. Nelson's command of Boston politics is truly impressive, as he conveys the tribalism and personal rivalries in considerable detail. Yet he really needed a better editor, as the constant repetition of small details really is annoying.
