This is more of a debunking of the various myths surrounding Lincoln than a biography of Lincoln, although it does deal with various events in Lincoln's life. I think Oates' intention is to make the reader see Lincoln as a flesh and blood man rather than as an icon or a villian as he has been previously portrayed. In this I think he has succeeded. As a result, this book makes a good companion piece to his biography of Lincoln WITH MALICE TOWARDS NONE.
A great history well done.
