I knew that Lincoln was revered as one of our greatest Presidents but after hearing this story, he may very well be the greatest of them all. In such a trying time, he was exactly what our young nation had to have.
Great story of the great man is brilliantly presented. Captivating, it overviews entire period and follows not only Lincoln but multiple members of His cabinet, presenting their human side, power struggle and relationships with Lincoln
Not just focusing on the great man and leader, Abraham Lincoln, but the circumstances and situation of his Era and the men who who helped and surrounded him to achieve his mission.

The internal tensions, debates, and political maneuverings are laid out in great and fascinating detail. In the end this book will help you understand what it truly means to be an American.
This was a remarkable work on one of the most remarkable men who ever lived. This book was very powerful and very moving. I really felt like I was there with Lincoln throughout this narration. The reading was perfectly paced, clear and very well done. I almost feel like starting the biography over again immediately after finishing it.
Of the many Lincoln biographies that I have read , Team of Rivals is the most the most complete and compelling of all. It is a priceless work.
