Patricia O'Toole's 5 most important books

Pulitzer Prize-nominated biographer Patricia O'Toole has chronicled the lives of powerful figures such as Henry Adams (The Five of Hearts) and Teddy Roosevelt (When Trumpets Call).

She told Newsweek about her five most important books.

The only one on her list that I haven't read:
The Journal of John Winthrop

Now there was a leader. Humane, visionary and just.
Read about the other four titles on Patricia O'Toole's list.
