This book tells Lincolns story in a intelligent and engrossing way. We came to know these people, but as is so rare - they grew and changed before our eyes.
What an achievement Lincoln wrought, taking this group of strong minded powerfully willed men each wanting the presidency for himself, and creating a team of men working together to see us successfully through the Civil War!
What President today could reach across the campaign vitriol and invite his talented rival to join his cabinet?
Fascinating book We listened to it on a very long road trip and in the end sat in the car in the dark at our destination so we could finish the last 20 minutes. We had tears in our eyes as we left the car.
I would have enjoyed the story of Newhart's life in any case - but having it read by him added that extra joy that his unique voice and hesitant manner has made him such a beloved character. Books like this are fun - not only did I laugh at his history, but my Dad enjoyed it and my niece - great for all ages!
