Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln - Doris Kearns Goodwin Basically, this book should be required reading for every citizen of the United States before being allowed to vote. Okay, that might be a bit extreme, but this book is simply a brilliantly written account of an extraordinary American who helped shape the modern United States. Working with a cabinet composed of disparate personalities and harnessing their respective skills to accomplish far more than could have been achieved had no attempt been made to pick the best person for each position in the cabinet. Balancing generous good will with steely resolve in accomplishing the components of a much bigger picture, Lincoln is revealed in Team of Rivals to be arguably the greatest leader the U.S. has seen.
