This book makes use of a host of newly unearthed legal documents to present a 'slice of life' of Abraham Lincoln's career as a lawyer. Cases include some of Lincoln's famous cases along with many that have never been written about previously. As the book title indicates Lincoln was a shrewd, sophisticated lawyer in his time. He made a comfortable living as a lawyer and was industrious in seeking out clients of all types. His clients included murderers, slave owners, physicians, divorce seekers, slandered individuals, an impeached judge, and a asylum administrator wrongfully discharged. Furthermore, Lincoln prosecuted a rapist and a murderer. Extensive research by the author is exhibited in a large number of reference notes and a comprehensive bibliography. Obviously, practicing lawyers will enjoy this book. However, the matereial is easy to read and should appeal to the general public as well. I have no hesitation in recommending this book to everyone.
