About the Author
Doris Kearns Goodwin’s interest in leadership began more than half a century ago as a professor at Harvard. Her experiences working for LBJ in the White House and later assisting him on his memoirs led to her bestselling Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream. She followed up with the Pulitzer Prize–winning No Ordinary Time: Franklin & Eleanor Roosevelt: The Home Front in World War II. She earned the Lincoln Prize for the runaway bestseller Team of Rivals, the basis for Steven Spielberg’s Academy Award-winning film Lincoln, and the Carnegie Medal for The Bully Pulpit, the New York Times bestselling chronicle of the friendship between Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft. She lives in Concord, Massachusetts, with her husband, the writer Richard N. Goodwin. Visit her at DorisKearnsGoodwin.com or @DorisKGoodwin.

My take away from it is that Abraham Lincoln surpasses even Georg Washington in stature. He is truly a man for the ages!
I believe it should be compulsory reading in all high schools...starting now!
Regarding Kindle version:
Pros: It is lightweight, which is a lot easier than reading a 900 page book.
Cons: The search function is not enabled in the Kindle version. The back-of-the-book Index has hyperlinks, but you have to manually page through it to find what you want to search for. This is a real drawback in a book of so many characters that you often want to be reminded about who somebody is.
