In 2010, he received the National Humanities Medal from President Barack Obama. "The Passage of Power," volume four, has been called "Shakespearean ... A breathtakingly dramatic story [told] with consummate artistry and ardor" ("The New York Times") and "as absorbing as a political thriller . . . By writing the best presidential biography the country has ever seen, Caro has forever changed the way we think about, and read, American history" (NPR). On the cover of "The New York Times Book Review," President Bill Clinton praised it as "Brilliant . . . Important . . .Remarkable. With this fascinating and meticulous account Robert Caro has once again done America a great service." "Caro has a unique place among American political biographers," according to "The Boston Globe."
