Quotes & Awards

  • “Ronald C. White restores Ulysses S. Grant to the pantheon of great Americans.”

    Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize winner and #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Stately and thoroughly researched…[White] wants us to admire Grant—for good reason…By the end, readers will see how fortunate the nation was that Grant went into the world—to save the Union, to lead it and, on his deathbed, to write one of the finest memoirs in all of American letters.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A game-changing biography.”

    Christian Science Monitor

  • “Conveys the essence of Grant the man and Grant the warrior…[Grant] deserved better from posterity, and from White he gets it.”


  • “[White’s] style is fluid and engaging, which makes this behemoth a page-turner. His mastery of history is clear on every page.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Voice actor Morey tackles White’s sprawling biography…with characteristic poise and dignity. The audiobook veteran never misses a beat with regard to diction and pacing…It’s not that Morey doesn’t let himself demonstrate emotion—a couple of scenes in which Grant angrily disciplines soldiers for their mistreatment of horses certainly grab the listener’s attention…but Morey maintains a somber presence befitting the nature of both the text and Grant himself.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Arthur Morey offers a solid narration. His voice is serious without sounding pedantic. This helps carry the narration through occasional overly detailed passages that could become tiresome in the hands of a less talented reader. He varies his tone to fit the material and sets off quotes with appropriate pauses. He doesn’t adopt special voices for individual speakers, which is wise given the brief length of most quotes.”
