Abraham Lincoln is different, at least for me. After reading Donald's Lincoln you walk away as though you had met the man and had a long -- and honest -- coversation with him. As opposed to many biographies of Lincoln, Donald relies on the president's own words and perceptions, not the author's opinions or views.
An important contribution to the study of Lincoln Donald provides is the humanity in which he treats the president's failures. We find out how he failed at business, politics and love before the successes he accomplished later.
When viewed through the lense of Lincon's life and times, he becomes even greater. The president was not popular, not well-supported by his own political party and not a saint. Lincoln is a politician, a detached but loyal husband, a thinker but not an idealogue and a genuinely funny guy.
Donald's greatest achievement is allowing Lincoln to be Lincoln. I highly recommend this book.
Michael D. Cohen, Ph.D.
The result is impressive. Donald sifts through the mythology and interpretations to lay Lincoln bare, often using Lincoln's own words to define the man. He presents a man of considerable ambition and a healthy ego, which helped him overcome the formidable challenges he faced in life. While Donald's argument that Lincoln was controlled by events is difficult to sustain, his portrait of a master politician who maintained his authority over a young party though tact and guile is excellent, as is his examination of Lincoln's constant problems with the Union army's high command. For readers seeking an introduction to the life of a legendary American leader, this is the book to read.
This deserves five stars for all aspects of this transaction.
I would highly recommend this book, if you are eager to know the American history and its president as i am.
