About The Book

'Another deeply hued and character-rich biography to match his justly celebrated study of Lindbergh' Financial Times

From Pulitzer Prize-winning, New York Times bestselling author, A. Scott Berg comes the definitive – and revelatory – biography of one of the great American figures of modern times.

One hundred years after his inauguration, Woodrow Wilson still stands as one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century, and one of the most enigmatic. And now, after more than a decade of research and writing, A. Scott Berg has completed Wilson – the most personal and penetrating biography ever written about the 28th President.

This is not just Wilson the icon – but Wilson the man.
