The Wise MenAuthor: Walter Isaacson and Evan Thomas

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Daniel: “While Isaacson is best known for his books on Einstein and Steve Jobs, I couldn’t put this foreign policy tome down once I began. Messrs. Isaacson and Thomas do a fantastic job of telling the story of six men, each of whom our authors believe was a major Washington influencer from the end of World War II to the end of the Cold War. One theme I appreciated that came from this book was the understanding that captains of industry had an obligation to serve their country in some capacity after reaping great financial successes. Each of our six featured men did just that.”
