9. I can very highly recommend the fourth volume of Robert Caro's LBJ biography

https://www.amazon.com/Passage-Power-Years-Lyndon-Johnson/dp/0375713255

It covers the period in Johnson's career from Kennedy's assassination through the passage of the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts, and it makes a very interesting read in terms of seeing how Johnson used his political skill to get those laws passed.
