“Berg offers one of the most personal accounts of the president, offering a riveting portrayal of who the man was that inhabited the White House. He also has the biographer's flare for capturing the various personalities who worked with him during his political career and the multiple issues--from racial segregation to foreign policy--that he dealt with,” stated Julian Zelizer, the Malcolm Stevenson Forbes, Class of 1941 Professor of History and Public Affairs at the Woodrow Wilson School.

For twenty years, Berg was a friend and confidant of Katharine Hepburn, and his biographical memoir “Kate Remembered” became the #1 New York Times bestseller. His biography of Woodrow Wilson was published in September, 2013. He is a Charter Trustee of Princeton University.
