Highly recommend everyone to read this masterpiece. The audiobook version was dreary in the beginning but so addictive once you get used to the narration. I am getting a physical version of the book for my collection.
Impressively researched. The characters really came to life for me. Sometimes though the amount of detail felt unnecessary and annoying. The narrator was formal, perhaps a bit stiff, but for me this fit the feel of the story and was not distracting. Overall, I very much enjoyed this book.
I just recommend this book to everyone and anyone wanting to go back and remember a part of history. This book is long, but as I said, very much worth the investment of time.
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
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.
