Had just seen the great firm Abraham Lincoln and found the book to coincide perfectly with the character so powerfully portrayed by Daniel Day Lewis. The book also helped clarify in my mind some of the points touched on by the film.
This book gives a great insight into the public and private mind of the great president. It's a must for anyone interested in the US civil war. Many public figures also hark back to Lincoln, a great speech maker and thinker.
Nice collection of stories here told with just he right attitude and interest to keep you reading ok some of the stories are a bit lame but you can not have it all, all in all well written and interesting but maybe not one you would rush to read again. But thats my view if you buy this then you might disagree all I can say is judge for yourself.
