Lincoln remarkably chose all his strongest rivals as his cabinet, and Goodwin gives us each rival's story. A good idea well executed; the rivals are interesting in themselves, and they add to your understanding of Lincoln's accomplishments. Goodwin's pat analyses and chapter closing deep thoughts are often useless, but they take up few lines out of a 700-page book that I read in a weekend.

This was the best book I've read of the Lincoln presidency. It showed the personal and political struggles that Lincoln faced during his presidency, It showed how his cabinet members felt they were better qualified to be president than he, and how some of them, not infrequently worked to undermine his credibility and his programs.
