Praise for Lindbergh

“The definitive account of a dramatic and disturbing American story…One of the most important biographies of the decade…an extraordinary achievement.”—Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A magisterial work…a superb job…With Berg’s free access to previously unavailable documentation, this is sure to be the definitive biography of Lindbergh.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Berg’s biography [is] sure to renew interest in this unique American hero.”—People Magazine

“In Lindbergh, A. Scott Berg brings us about as close as I suspect we ever will get to the man himself. The first biographer to be granted unfettered access to Lindbergh’s private papers, Berg provides enough fresh detail to trace the roots of Lindbergh’s personality, its strengths as well as its maddening flaws, all the way back to his turbulent boyhood.”—The New York Times Book Review

“A biography that will be one of the publishing events of the year…one of the most extraordinary lives of the 20th century.”—Vanity Fair

“Fanatically researched and very moving…stunning in its fairness to a harsh and unknowable Charles  Lindbergh.”—Esquire

“A comprehensive and invaluable text.”—The Washington Post Book World

“The most outstanding piece of nonfiction that I have read this year…Berg does a spectacular job of establishing why Lindbergh proves such a powerful icon for the 20th century…A substantial piece of history that illuminates an important figure…It’s the kind of book that took almost a decade to create. And it’s worth it.”—USA Today
