the politically inclined
Read in January, 2007
Probably only a three star for most people--but I love Lincoln so much that it got bumped up. There are innumerable Abe books out there, but I recommend this one to those of you with an interest in politics. It's amazing how Lincoln treated his enemies. Most would destroy them politically. HE PUT THEM IN HIS CABINET!! Gotta love a man with that much respect for intelligence that happens to disagree with his own.
If you haven't read anything about Lincoln before, choose a book NOW. So many people adore him, and don't even know why he is so worthy of adoration. Why? Too many reasons to count.
