    Story
    (93)

    Drawing on a wealth of his own research and the work of other Lincoln scholars, Shenk reveals how the sixteenth president harnessed his depression to fuel his astonishing success. Lincoln found the solace and tactics he needed to deal with the nation's worst crisis in the "coping strategies" he developed over a lifetime of persevering through depressive episodes and personal tragedies.

    Scott says: "Lincoln was depressed - who knew?"
    "Loved it!"
    Overall

    This book pulls back into account the oral history that too many historians discount. As an attorney I know that documented history can be over valued and too many times oral history may be more accurate than recorded history.
    This book also brings a psycho-analytical approach to both the oral and documented history of Lincoln.
    It is a MUST READ for any Lincoln or Civil War historian.
    It is hard to turn off.
