A wonderful book … a remarkable study in leadershipBarack Obama

 

A brilliant book … I couldn’t get enough of it –– Alex Ferguson

 

Goodwin’s narrative abilities are on full display here. A portrait of Lincoln as a virtuosic politician and managerial genius — Michiko Kakutani ― New York Times

 

I have not enjoyed a history book as much for years — Robert Harris ― The Observer (Books of the Year)

 

The most uplifting book that I have read in the last two decades. Sensational — Jon Snow

 

“An elegant, incisive study of Lincoln and leading members of his cabinet that will appeal to experts as well as to those whose knowledge of Lincoln is an amalgam of high school history and popular mythology…. Goodwin has brilliantly described how Lincoln forged a team that preserved a nation and freed America from the curse of slavery.” -James M. McPherson, The New York Times Book Review

 

“A brilliantly conceived and well-written tour de force of a historical nar rative…. Goodwin’s contribution is refreshingly unique…. Goodwin’s emotive prose elevates this tome from mere popular history to literary achievement.” -Douglas Brinkly, The Boston Globe

 

“Goodwin finds her Lincoln hiding in plain view. He is Lincoln the politician, but one whose political shrewdness ends up being indistinguishable from wisdom. She has written a wonderful book. There is a man in it.” -Garry Wills, American Scholar

 

“A sweeping, riveting account… Put simply, Goodwin’s story of Lincoln’s great, troubled, triumphant life is a star-spangled, high-stepping, hat-waving, bugle-blowing winner.” – Daily News (New York)
