Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

ArielBee, August 4, 2012

This is an account of Abraham Lincoln’s life in politics from the perspective of those who knew him best. Goodwin provides enough background information and insight into the events of the day and other people’s lives that the reader feels fully immersed in America of the 19th century. The most impressive aspect of Goodwin’s writing is how she creates a feeling of suspense in spite of the reader knowing exactly what is about to happen to Lincoln. Team of Rivals is a great read for people wanting to learn more about the man who kept America whole.
