Promise and Power: The Life and Times of Robert McNamara
Promise and Power: The Life and Times of Robert McNamara

"[A] brilliant biography."
Seth Lipsky, Wall Street Journal

"A large chiaroscuro of ambition, hope and tragedy."
Josiah Bunting III, Washington Times

"In a clear and straightforward way, she analyzes his style of leadership. She is fair as well."
Evan Thomas, Washington Post

"What McNamara did not spend time doing [since leaving the World Bank] was writing memoirs. Deborah Shapley’s book will admirably fill that gap."
Michael R. Beschloss, Chicago Tribune
