Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

A highly readable general biography of the American icon, complete with replicas of notes, sketches and letters from the presidential collection, this book will delight Lincoln enthusiasts, as well as fans of American history. Wills's text is a well-written account of Lincoln's life, with nods to all of the recent scholarship-from Doris Kearns Goodwin's 2005 Team of Rivalsto recent speculation over Lincoln's sexual orientation-without sinking into too much analysis or debate. Photos, portraits and engravings abound (though, chronologically, they're occasionally at odds with the text), and a dozen vellum envelopes bound into the book hold historic reproductions, including a leaf from Lincoln's school notebook, an 1860 presidential campaign banner and his handwritten copy of the Emancipation Proclamation. Though a bit gimmicky, these replicas do provide unique insight into the man's elusive life; holding a letter from an impatient Mary Todd that begins, "I have waited in vain to hear from you... [but] will be charitable enough to impute your silence to the right cause," one can almost hear the president's exasperated sigh as he turns to his writing desk. (Oct.)

    Beautiful Book!

    This is simply a beautifully illustrated book and belongs on the shelf of every Lincoln and Civil War buff. Even well read Lincoln buffs and serious historians can find something of interest in this book. Chuck Wills text is fast passed and accurate and this reviewer liked his commentary on Mary Todd Lincoln and how Lincoln's views on race differ from what is considered apporiate today. The pull out reproductions are fantastic and of high quality. This is the best short biography of Lincoln that this reviewer has read to date.
