    In the best-selling tradition of Truman, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer David Herbert Donald offers a new classic in American history and biography - a masterly account of how one man's extraordinary political acumen steered the Union to victory in the Civil War, and of how his soaring rhetoric gave meaning to that agonizing struggle for nationhood and equality.

    Story
    Would you listen to Lincoln again? Why?

    I would listen to Lincoln again because of the due diligence, detail, and thoughtful editorial comments. The latter were particularly helpful during the Washington war years as Lincoln managed the conservatives versus the radicals.


    What other book might you compare Lincoln to and why?

    Isaacson's Ben Franklin


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The early Salem and Springfield descriptions were very well done.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The Man Understood the Big Picture


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing that kept this book from being a '5' was that their could have been more analysis of the relationships, which Lincoln managed so well. Indeed, Lincoln's 'superpower' was his ability to manage people.
