I've known Jeff for years and have never really gotten him. You can never be quite sure where he's coming from: He talks fast, and his shifting perspectives and strategies on the media can blind you like a blizzard. He tends to devise innovative-soun ...more

"Team of rivals" - okay, an excuse to write another Lincoln book, and that's what this is: another effort to parse our greatest politician. I have read a lot of Lincoln books. Not surprising, Doris Kearns Goodwin does a wonderful job analyzing his po ...more

The Best Game Ever by Jim Reisler
Rate this book
