    "Ever since my 5th grade field trip to Washington DC, and my visit to Ford Theater I have had a slight obsession with President Lincoln. This book feeds that obsession. As a history buff, this book is the total package."

    "As a young boy, I lived in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. While the Daley administration grew, I was surprised at how the state's political landscape had changed so drastically since the days of Lincoln. The uninformed do not know that he was born in Kentucky, or that he was a Republican. Throughout my adulthood, I was deeply entrenched in the Republican party. There was a time when the Republican platform was resolute in financial conservatism and social enlightenment. Goodwin does a superb job of showing us that we are not wrong when we long for the "good ole days". Just as Lincoln was denigrated, so was Obama. The goosebumps she generates, compels us to be better, provokes us to renew our faith in the Republic and rather than party."

    "This is a historical novel focused on the rise of Abraham Lincoln from obscurity to famous US president. This focuses more on the political operations behind Lincoln's rise than on his life itself, but nevertheless it is a comprehensive look into the life of one of America's most well recognized presidents. I would recommend this to any history and political buff who is interested in learning more about Lincoln's rise"

    "This book was a nice history lesson for me. I did not know much about Abraham Lincoln background, but I was able to find out more through this book. I borrowed this book from a friend and read it when I would travel. It showed Lincoln was not only a great president, but also a great tactician. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in history, especially U.S. history."

    "The description itself isn't very convincing; who is UNABLE to put them-self into another person's shoes? I do not believe this is a skill possessed by less than 100% of the human race. Therefore, I find it difficult to believe anyone who thinks this capacity is what allowed Lincoln to be such a political genius."
