This was a great biography of not only Abraham Lincoln but also of the men that made up his cabinet. Goodwin shows readers not only of the great accomplishments of Abraham Lincoln but also the men and events that helped shape his decisions. I really enjoyed reading this book; it was very informative without being too dry. I would definitely recommend this book to those interested in Abraham Lincoln and the civil war. If you are willing to read a long but very fascinating book then this is the book for you.
