I don't really see the point of this book. It lacks historical accuracy and objectivity and is not very well-written. Grover Gardner's narration is, of course, exemplary. We are fortunate to have Gardner's reading of Shelby Foote's masterpiece The Civil War: A Narrative. All of the Lincoln stories are brilliantly recounted in Foote's book. That's the one you want.
Honest, Depression, Commited
Lincoln in his 20's
This book presents a solid illustration of a man that demonstrated much love, sadness, success, and disappointments throughout his life. Being a Lincoln enthusiast for many years I still rate this book as the "go to" book for anyone wanting to get an accurate life view of this great American.
This book examines the development of Lincoln's character and spirituality. His character is illustrated by many wonderful stories. He was truly great.
