Format: Paperback
I have always been facinated by Abraham Lincoln and his life. This book fed my Lincoln obsession with gusto. It's a facinating look at the physical aspects of Lincoln, the possible differential diagnosis of both his appearance and anecdotal information(Gregory House could do no better.)Several of our presidents (Kennedy, Roosevelt, etc.) have had diseases that have effected their lives and presidency; now we know that Lincoln is probably one of them. Each chapter blows you away with new information about Lincoln and his possible maladies. It also gives you a new appreciation of the man and his abilities. This is a must book for anyone who likes American History. It adds a new dimension to how we look at historical figures. Until you know their physical history, you don't have the full picture of the person. Well worth the read.

Dr. Sotos has created an amazing compendium of Lincoln medical information, along with world-class note and bibliographical sections. I'm simply amazed that he was able to gather and synthesize the many primary sources which are put forward in his attempt to prove that Lincoln was a victim of a genetic disease called MEN2B. Before attempting to prove his hypothesis, the doctor destroys arguments which favor the president's affliction as Marfan's Syndrome. I ordered both The Physical Lincoln and The Physical Lincoln Sourcebook (they come as one book in edition 1.1). I cannot recommend these two books enough for those with an interest not only in what might have ailed Lincoln, but what others of his time thought of his features as well. Truly a super-human effort on the part of Dr. Sotos. I will certainly purchase updated versions of this fantastic and much needed resource.

With a new book about Lincoln coming out every few days The Physical Lincoln by John Sotos provides us with something different from the usual and customary looks at Lincoln.

Lincoln had many odd physical characteristics. Some we can't help but notice from photos. Others such as his high pitched voice we learn from the reports of those who knew him and others that only from someone with sufficient medical knowledge too make the connections.
.
Sotos makes those connections. He contends that Lincoln was not merely odd in appearance nor was he necessarily depressed but had a rare physical condition that impacted on his life as well as his presidency and perhaps the fate of the nation. Whether you agree with his conclusions or not it is a compelling read and raises some profound questions for us today. How much do we really need to know about the medical history of our presidents?

I find the book to be revealing to see how President Lincoln's health was in the large picture. The book is packed with fasinating facts and profound information to make the reader see how one great man as Lincoln was, lived and functioned. This is a wonderful research to any Lincoln scholar, or researcher like myself.

This is a thoroughly researched and highly readable book that uses photographs and contemporary accounts to make a convincing case that Abraham Lincoln had a genetic disease, probably passed it to three of his four sons, and would likely have died of cancer within weeks or months of his last photograph in 1865 if he hadn't been assassinated.

This is actually two books in one cover. The second volume contains extensive research notes as well as information about other members of Lincoln's family. If that's not of interest, you can buy just the first volume separately.
