Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln
Doris Kearns Goodwin
This was an excellent telling of a remarkable presidency. What a concept - a president who takes his own rivals, and harnesses their insights and personality in the hour our nation's greatest need! THAT's the way to do it - not surrounding yourself with yes-men(and women)!
Acclaimed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin illuminates Lincoln's political genius in this highly original work, as the one-term congressman and prairie lawyer rises from obscurity to prevail over three gifted rivals of national reputation to become president.
