The Civil War was not about States rights. only the most disingenuous and cynical among persist in that despicable lie. The war was fought to end slavery. Lincoln was sent to us in our time of need and had he lived, so much that has happened in this nation between the races would not be so.
Lincoln can teach the leaders of today! Building teams while still maintaining control. Giving team members decision making authority while still making the ultimate decisions.
By far one of the best.
Bill Clinton's My Life
She expresses the best of the characters.
I really enjoyed this book.
After reading some reviews I was a little concerned I wouldn't enjoy the book. There were many complaints on the narration. I had no problem at all I found her wonderful to listen too and thoroughly enjoyed the story
This has been one of my top 3 audible listens (of over 30 total) so far. I am in awe of how much attention to detail there was as well as how interesting all of the information was. If you've ever been curious about Abraham Lincoln and this fascinating time in history, THIS is the be-all, end-all book to read. LOVED IT!!!
I kept on thinking to myself--how could Lincoln always stay above the fray? never really get hung up on anything? So... superhuman!
This is more than a historical book--it is a leadership book. It makes you think about your own pettiness and shows that taking the higher road can not only be done but that it can have much better consequences than our petty tendencies. The book was top of mind for months (an upside from it being incredibly long) and often made me think about my own reactions to various situations at work.
A wonderful book. It gets bogged down in the Washington social scene a bit, but overall it was one I'm very glad to listen to.
