    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have liked a little more about his personal life even though I realize they wanted us to know about the political part of his life.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The interesting part was his move when becoming President. The least interesting was some of the information about the wars.

    "Excellent Text and Excellent Narration"
    Any additional comments?

    The text was a wonderful little explanation of the life of Lincoln. The author does not skip on the smaller points of scholarship that he has gained from his extensive experience in history. I could listen to this book a couple of times.
