Amazing read. Unfortunately this was one of the first full length biographies I ever read so I didn't appreciate how great it really was at the time. In hindsight, its still one of the most complete and well written biographies I've ever read (I acknowledge a heavy bias toward all things Lincoln). Way too many books out there to re-read but this is an exception. Warning: While I stand by my 5 star rating I will say that it isn't the easiest read. It gets a bit dense at times because of the thoroughness of Donald's research.
