    a lot of history in very few pages

    Easy but interesting read. There are a lot of books on the market about Lincoln that will take you weeks to read; this one can be read on an airplane ride, filled with facts...very interesting. People may buy a lot of Lincoln books that may sit on the shelf -- this is one you will read. Good for students too -- makes history accessible!

    A great man reviewing a great man

    My family and I met Senator McGovern at Mt. Rushmore earlier this month (8/09). He was more interested in us and our travels (we were on vacation from WI to CA via SD) than he was in his past accomplishments or current ambitions. I read this book after reading more about him - subsequent to meeting him. I unconditionally, categorically, and unequivocally recommend this book, not simply because he was genuinely interested in our family (although that demonstrates character beyond that which occasionally makes it to the White House - a subtle knock to Nixon, but he had it coming), but because it is truly a reflection of a great man by a great man. Senator McGovern mentioned that perhaps, someday President Obama would share a place at Mt. Rushmore - I share that desire with my friend (I could be stretching with "friend" but he made my family feel like friends so friend it is) to see Barack Obama as worthy of that distinction. Thank you, Senator, for the book - for talking with my family and for making our country great. Our world is much better off because of you George McGovern - If that sounds like "George Bailey" it should - Thanks Senator.
