I first heard about Caro when my partner, Alejandra, slammed down the 1,336 page tome The Power Broker. This much less intimidating book was a great introduction to Caro's eloquence, and actually quite glad it was my first: it highlights his approach to the craft of biographical research and writing. That background, I feel, will give me a deeper appreciation for the works I plan to read soon.
