Means of Ascent is Book Two of Robert Caro's Lyndon Johnson series. It brings Johnson love in his "wilderness" years. The book carries the president-to-be from the aftermath of his devastating defeat in his 1941 campaign for the Senate. It shows the grueling test of his spirit that followed as political doors slammed shut through his WWll service and the foundation of his wealth. The heart of the book, base on extraordinarily detailed investigation, is the true story of the fiercely contested 1948 senatorial election which Johnson was not believed capable of winning.
