I thought it was somewhat long but in the end it was all worth listining. His life was a true insperation to me and it was hard to listen to the details of his unjustified end. highly recomend.
I've read many books on Lincoln and this us the best. Long but never boring, detailed but never trivial. Loved the book but enjoyed the audible version even more
A citizen of the world that loves to learn, and teach others the wonderful things they too can learn. With a #Smile :D #TeachersMakeTheWorl
the narrator takes you back in time, the book makes you an actor in that time
Likely one of the greatest books on the Civil War ever written, Goodwin portrays Lincoln and his entire cabinet in astonishing detail. Flinching from no details, Team of Rivals evidences how, rather than run from confrontation, Lincoln brought together his various political rivals and used their differing perspectives and abilities to aid the Union at a time when it was desperately needed. Even more to Goodwin's credit, the accounts of Southern leaders such as Robert E. Lee are some of the most fair and unbiased I've ever read in any Civil War history book. If you at all want to understand Abraham Lincoln, and why he ranks among history's greatest leaders, I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
I owned this book for more than five years but was unable on several
occasions to become engaged successfully. As an audiobook I found it compelling and irresistible. Bravo author, Doris Kearns Goodwin and Audible.com. Thank you for the gift of this book.
I don't rate a lot of books, but I had to write this one. This book felt like a self-help book on leadership as well as an awesome historical narrative. The story is great America doesn't excellent job
