“Pulitzer Prize–winning historian McPherson contributes to the slew of Lincoln biennial books with this succinct biography…Delivers gracefully on McPherson’s promise to capture ‘the essential events and meaning of Lincoln’s life without oversimplification or overgeneralization.’” Publishers Weekly
“John McDonough’s magisterial narration gives listeners a sense of the remarkable life and shocking death of the nation’s greatest president…Lincoln’s rise to national power, his melancholy, his marriage, his ambition, his trials as a war leader and manager of a Cabinet of immense egos are detailed, and his place in history is affirmed in this eloquent audiobook.” AudioFile
