    Story
    (1510)

    On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry. Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Book is mired in detail that adds little to the story. How many times do I have to be told that Kate Chase is beautiful? I got the message the first 10 times. Although the book offers great insight as to Lincoln the man, it is littered with tiny details of little interest. Was Ms. Kearns being paid by the word?


    Would you be willing to try another book from Doris Kearns Goodwin? Why or why not?

    Perhaps. Need to take a break for a while.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Suzanne Toren’s performances?

    I'd always give he narrator a second chance.


    Was Team of Rivals worth the listening time?

    No
