  • Team of rivals

    By Bobbychris
    The book was wonderful! I learned so much history that I had not known. It is written in a style that makes the facts come alive.
  • Lincoln

    By waward1
    Wow, the best book ever written about our greatest president. Goodwin was able to reveal the real Lincoln through the eyes of his cabinet and many others. I feel I now know Mr. Lincoln on a personal level. It is time for a visit to Springfield to again pay my respects to this great man and president.

    What an excellent and well researched account of the life of this famous man. I found the pace of the book very pleasing and the content even more so. Days would pass without reading, yet I could easily recall my place in Lincoln's life. Congratulations to you, Doris Kearns Goodwin, on such a masterpiece....
  • Very well written, terrible presentation

    I am very disappointed with this book. I was impressed with the movie Licoln, but the presentation of this book is just plain awful. There is no plot, just names, dates, and facts. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
  • Amazing book.....

    Beautifully written book.

    Prior to reading this fine book, I considered my knowledge of the 16th president "above average." After completing "Team of Rivals", I now fully understand what Daniel Day-Lewis, the actor who portrayed President Lincoln in the motion picture, meant when he said, "I never loved someone more that I never met as I loved Lincoln." I'm in awe of the greatness that was President Lincoln.

    This is the best book I've read on Lincoln. I felt as if I was there. It is well worth your time to read this book. Excellent read.

    This book is so well written and so well put together that it feels like a work of the finest fiction. Although I have read many tomes about Lincoln, I found myself in tears when he died of his wounds. I normally don't cry over history books. Kudos to the author! I hope to see more from her. And to top it off, she is a friend of the Colbert Report.
  • Five star writing, 3 star presentation

    By mikefao
    Goodwin has mastered the subject matter and presents a compelling and informative narrative. A must read for anyone interested in presidential history, political history, the Civil War, or American history writ large. But, for students of history, one of the greatest benefits of a work like this is the notes. Goodwin's notes are extensive, but (unless there is an issue with my download) the notes are not linked--you don't see the endnote number on the page you are reading. Very disappointing and frustrating.
  • Excellent

    By Robert654
    Book is very well researched and written, and engrossing. Be forewarned: the iBook addition does NOT contain any illustrations or photos like the printed version.
