Anything, and I mean anything written by Abraham Lincoln is worth the read. He was a brilliant man, lawyer, politician, etc. He was not called "Honest Abe" for nothing. He knew the difference between right and wrong and acted upon it. He never spun the truth like so many do today. He had all the qualities of a gentleman and a God-fearing patriot, a loving husband and father, and a great and steadfast friend. I doubt today's colleges could ever bring anyone close to the homespun education Lincoln had. A must read!

This collection of Lincoln's speeches and letters shows how pre-occupied the nation was for all of Lincoln's political life with the "peculiar institution" as events led inexorably to the war. Reading Lincoln's words made me want to explore this ominous period in greater depth.

Through Lincoln's speeches, it is revealed what great character this president had.
Through his faith the strength of his unselfish character is revealed. It reveals the importance of a strong faith to guide one in all decisions'

"Speeches and Letters of Abraham Lincoln" provides a great spectrum of his words throughout his public career from the 1830s to his death in 1865. This volume is tastefully edited. Reading Lincoln in his own words only elevates his person; there is such a clear, prescient nature to his intelligence and vision for the country that is evident two decades before his serious run for president. Over the years leading to his candidacy and ultimately his election to president this vision became a steely resolve that would act as a connection to his North star and ground his work as commander-in-chief.
I was pleased with the Kindle edition and didn't see any major format issues or editing errors that affected normal reading. If you are looking for an easy to read introduction to Abraham Lincoln in his own words this is a great place to start. If you are looking for a more academic approach with analysis and commentary you'll need to keep looking.

It lacks the historical background. Sometimes it seems like the speeches have fallen from the sky like the 10 mandaments

Great insight into the mind of Lincoln and the times he lived in. Filled in gaps in my knowledge of history in those times. great accompanying read to "Team of Rivals" by Goodwin.

The old fashioned English was hard to read. I did get through it and I did get the message. But it is not light reading. Be prepared to turn your brain on.
