    Longlisted for the 2014 PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography

    ?With the prescience that all truly great biographers possess, Berg discovered in Woodrow Wilson a figure who would understand Washington’s current state of affairs.”?Vanity Fair

    ?A brilliant biography that still resonates in Washington today.”?Doris Kearns Goodwin

    From Pulitzer Prize?winning, #1 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, Pulitzer Prize-winning author A. Scott Berg has completed Wilson--the most personal and penetrating biography ever written about the 28th President.

    In addition to the hundreds of thousands of documents in the Wilson Archives, Berg was the first biographer to gain access to two recently-discovered caches of papers belonging to those close to Wilson. From this material, Berg was able to add countless details--even several unknown events--that fill in missing pieces of Wilson’s character and cast new light on his entire life.

    From the scholar-President who ushered the country through its first great world war to the man of intense passion and turbulence , from the idealist determined to make the world ?safe for democracy” to the stroke-crippled leader whose incapacity and the subterfuges around it were among the century’s greatest secrets, the result is an intimate portrait written with a particularly contemporary point of view ? a book at once magisterial and deeply emotional about the whole of Wilson’s life, accomplishments, and failings. This is not just Wilson the icon ? but Wilson the man.
