I thought the best thing about this book is how it explained Lincoln's decision-making process. A wonderful read.
Some other reviews do not give high marks to the narrator. I found the narration to be extremely neutral, in a good way. The content was center stage, and the narration did not draw attention.
I thought divisive partisanship was a relatively new phenomenon. After finishing this book, it is apparent that it has always been with us. The great detail with which this book was written gives a real sense of the sentiment of both sides of the argument regarding slavery.
This book was so well researched, the topic so thoroughly covered, and the style so engaging that I couldn't imagine reading a book about Lincoln and his tenure being more vivid and it's helpful for me to understand who he was in the world he lived in.
I have owned this book for several years but never got around to completing it. I got the audio version of it and finished it in just three short weeks. I loved this book. I would highly recommend it.
Great book, but I would recommend the abridged version. The amount of information is almost overwhelming. But I still enjoyed the book.
Sorry I arrived at the end.
Everyone should hear it. It is a comprehensive history of the Lincoln cabinet before and during Civil War, extremely well documented and readable like a novel.
