A very one-sided narrative but that was the author's intention obviously...

I know Abe was not the man people normally portray him to be and I wanted a more detailed account about the real Abraham Lincoln. Dilorenzo is set out to completely tear down the image of Abe from top to bottom and in his efforts there is a bit of exaggeration here and there throughout the book. I think it is still an interesting read and I know this book is meant to be controversial but I think a book that is set out to view Abraham Lincoln's character from all angles in an unbiased, neutral manner will be more educational for the reader.
