Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln
by Doris Kearns Goodwin

Buy The Books

This book is not just about Abraham Lincoln!  Goodwin exposes the greatness and vulnerabilities of Lincoln, all the great men in his cabinet, close family, lifelong friends, war generals....did I mention it is a lengthy book?

 What a great example to us all!  Lincoln overlooked a man's imperfection and found the virtues within.  He willingly worked with men that others could only offer contempt!  A true political genius!  Besides a great moral story, Team of Rivals opened my eyes to the political process of the past.  Amazing!!!

I read in lightning speed and by the book's end felt as though I were part of the team!  OK, I admit, sometimes I was, just at times hear, perturbed at Lincoln's patience and longsuffering.  I was a just bit uptight while yelling, "WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING?  GET RID OF THAT GUY!  HE'S BRINGING YOU (and the Union) DOWN!"

When you've finished you may want to check out LINCOLN: A Photobiography.  It is an easier read, but the book captures some of the greatest images of Lincoln!

Happy Reading
