Reviews

In a multiple portrait that includes William Seward, Salmon P. Chase, and Edward Bates, Lincoln's rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, Goodwin limns the political genius that brought Lincoln to the Presidency. With at 16-city tour. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

A wonderful book ... a remarkable study in leadership -- Barack Obama
The most uplifting book that I have read in the last two decades. Sensational -- Jon Snow
I have not enjoyed a history book as much for years -- Robert Harris * The Observer (Books of the Year) *
A fabulously engrossing, exciting narrative in the grand old style ... overflowing with colour and character -- Dominic Sandbrook
A brilliant book ... I couldn't get enough of it -- Alex Ferguson
Goodwin's narrative abilities are on full display here. A portrait of Lincoln as a virtuosic politician and managerial genius -- Michiko Kakutani * New York Times *

This production of Goodwin's acclaimed biography enters the marketplace as a tie-in for Steven Spielberg's latest Hollywood epic, Lincoln. While Goodwin's book serves as the basis for the film, listeners of the adaptation may be puzzled that the narrative in this abridged edition does not include President Abraham Lincoln's efforts to gain passage of the 13th Amendment-efforts that provides the centerpiece for a great deal of the movie's storyline. However, the abridgment flows quite smoothly in its own right. Narrator Richard Thomas evokes an earnestness and dignity in keeping with the spirit of the material. He effectively conveys the personal bonds between Lincoln and his unlikely circle of advisors. In the case of Secretary of State William Seward, the emotional depths of the character's devotion become especially clear via Thomas's performance. And the narrator-whose tone remains sentimental without descending into maudlin territory-nicely tackles the sections devoted to Lincoln's family life, most notably the attachment he maintained with youngest son Tad.
