    " For a book on the politics of Abraham Lincoln, this is good. Shows how he used the men who were his rivals for the US Presidency. You can see the gift Lincoln had of insight to handle people and problems. Also covers his early history, his campaigning for different offices, and death "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara | 2/16/2014

    " An amazing and detailed portrait of Lincoln and his rivals/colleagues and the complex issues they faced. I am absolutely blown away by the Lincoln, Seward, Stanton, et al. A must read, especially given our country's challenges today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Felicia | 2/15/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Welbaum | 2/4/2014

    " PAGE turner. if you want to combine relational studies with Civil war... awesome. Please read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie Shinabarger | 2/3/2014

    " None better.......a true case study in leadership based on history "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Relyea | 2/1/2014

    " Learned a lot about the civil war and leadership in general. Goodwin described the men in a way that makes them understandable even by people who lived 150+ years after they did. Highly recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 1/30/2014

    " Ok, first thing you need to know is that it's 700 pages long. Second thing to know is that it's a really great 700 pages. So well told, you really stay engaged through the whole thing, and I learned so much! I'm really grateful to people who can make history so approachable by the non-scholar, so that we can have the chance to learn from our past and understand what a rich heritage we have. If anyone else reads it, I'd love to discuss it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Blaine | 1/18/2014

    " Long and heavy at times, but a great book. This reads like a novel, not a history book, though it is packed with history. Lincoln and his genius really comes to light. I also learned quite a bit about others of that time I thought I knew of, but didn't really. Well worth the read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 1/10/2014

    " An amazing look at Lincoln and the men who shaped the country during the Civil War. The book looks in depth at his rivals who made up his cabinet and who grew to respect and admire a man whose background was nothing like theirs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 1/1/2014

    " This is a fantastic book. I want more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roger Prather | 12/15/2013

    " I've seen others say it, and I'm going to repeat it: Put down whatever you're reading now and read this book. It will give you a greater understanding and appreciation for this period of U.S. history and the man, Abraham Lincoln. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emanuel Ramos | 12/9/2013

    " Superb biography of Lincoln, told through his relationships with those in his cabinet. Goodwin breathes such life into the main players. Highest recommendation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudine Cable | 11/27/2013

    " Excellent book that taught me about Lincoln in a way I had not known or considered before. His ability to work with leaders of different opinions and abilities was an inspiration to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathie | 11/27/2013

    " Not as good as I had hoped for. I've liked her other books, but I didn't think this had enough new information in it to warrant such a long book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Florence Primrose | 8/17/2013

    " Godwin tells the story primarily of the years of Lincoln's presidency and the different factions attempting to influence his decisions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Henry Chavez | 3/4/2013

    " An excellent read from start to finish. I feel as if I now have a profound understanding of this great man. I think it brilliant that the author chose to define Mr. Lincoln by the views and perceptions of these equally interesting men and women. This is a triumph of literary genius. Bravo! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 12/11/2012

    " Very good history of Abraham Lincoln and the interesting dynamics within his Cabinet. Very sorry to have it end and in such a traumatic way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bess | 3/1/2012

    " Especially interesting against the backdrop of the Republic Convention. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doug Canfield | 9/16/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 6/8/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Mccutcheon | 4/9/2011

    " An excellent book. Extremely well written and thoroughly researched. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to explore the political landscape and strategic vision of Lincoln. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 8/4/2010

    " I started this just before going to see the movie "Lincoln" and while the movie covered only a small part of what the book does; and the book hardly went into the manuverings to pass the 13th Amendment to the extent that the movie does--having seen the movie made it easy to visualize these men. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hilarie | 4/23/2010

    " One of the best biographies I have ever read. "
