I thought this book provided a very good history lesson, especially for someone like me who did not know much about Lincoln. However, I was hoping to get more detailed insight into how Lincoln managed and leveraged his team which consisted of many former adversaries. Perhaps the unabridged version provides more detail.
It is touted as a finance book, however it offers more interesting history insights. The primary financial take-away is to diversify investments (investment types and international locations) and, despite big downturns during the 1900s, the stock market over time was one of the best investment vehicles. The narrator was one of the best I have heard and I found the historical insights from WWII and the Korean War unique and intriguing. This was a very enjoyable listen.
