The first thing that you need to know is that this book is full of great, historical information of Abraham Lincoln’s political background from his time prior to the nomination through his assassination. The second thing is that you will notice plenty of similarities on the political climates of Reagan, both Bushes, Clinton, Obama, and Trump. The third thing is that this book is a long book. It is not a sit down on a Saturday afternoon type of book because of its length. I was amazed at the amount of detail that Goodwin portrayed all throughout the book. It characterized Lincoln as a human being who was prone to deep thought and jubilant conversations. Very few would say that this book was a 3 star. It is a 5 star even with the amount of content.
