    Well done compendium of quotes and stories defining Abe Lincoln

    I received as a gift and was less than thrilled because I thought it was just another "review" of Lincoln. I was wrong! It is a complete compilation from writings done over many years about Lincoln. Many perspectives are given and great stories and quotes. This gives a well rounded look at Lincoln the man and polititian. Compelling.
