I am particularly interested in Lincoln, and this book covered the infamous result pretty well, and well detailed. On the other hand, all of the circumstances around the 16th president's death are quite well known and come from many sources, but this is a good collection of the facts, and surprises once in a while with a detail you might not have heard or read earlier. If the Civil War era and Lincoln in particular is of interest, you really should add this book, it's good value as well.

Written by the doctor who administered medical care to Abraham Lincoln immediately after he was shot so this book is full of historical detail. Also it was interesting to read, from a first-hand account, about medicinal care and medical attitudes towards the family in the nineteenth century.

We all know Lincoln was shot but did know how it was during the year 1863. The good Doctor is able to give us an insight how the doctors tried to save him but without any of our knowledge and all the things we take forgranted in modern hospitals.
