I learned a lot, aside from the eerily obvious facial resemblance between him and Lincoln (it really really is eerie).
The very best part of this book, is the incredible introduction provided by Arthur M. Slesinger. Incredible points about leadership for our modern day politics.

Thank you for that inclusion. I hope that we aren't forced into a similar divisional war with obtuse leaders who believe unsourced and unproven concepts about our united states.

God bless America. Stand beside her and guide her!
