Publisher's Summary

This new Reader’s Edition of Harry Truman’s memoirs removes the overload of detail and reproduced historical documents, reduces the bloated cast of characters, clarifies the often confusing balance between chronological and thematic presentation, and corrects some important problems of presentation that made the two volumes of Truman’s memoirs - published in 1955 and 1956 - difficult to read and enjoy.  

This new edition, reduced to half the length of the original text, offers a new generation of readers the thrill of hearing the unique and authentic voice of Harry S. Truman, probably the most important president of the last 75 years, telling the story of his life, his presidency, and some of the most important years in American history.

The book is published by University of Missouri Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Abooks.

"Presents the most compelling sections of each volume, gracefully combining them into one powerful narrative." (Jon E. Taylor, University of Central Missouri)

"Cohesive, enlightening, and thoroughly enjoyable work of autobiographical and political literature." (Benn Steil, Historian in Residence, Council on Foreign Relations)
