Reader reviews for Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

And I thought I knew enough about Abraham Lincoln. Doris Kearns Goodwin brings to life Lincoln, the major political figures of his day, and the major issues. She also recaps the history of attempts to deal with slavery through the first half of the nineteenth century. I understand American history much more thoroughly after reading this book.

As good as everyone says. Well-researched, well-written, completely absorbing. It probably helps a little that I have a tiny crush on Lincoln, but this book doesn't need much help, if any.
