Most other books about Lincoln these days involve an aspect of his character, or a particular segment of his life. This one is the first I have read since David Herbert Donald's biography which covers Lincoln's life completely. The writing is good, but there really is little in here that I haven't read before. White treats his subject as a human being, rather than as an icon, which is how biographies should be written. I found it a rather quick read, and well-researched. I'd recommend this as a book for someone who hasn't spent a lot of time researching Abraham Lincoln and just wants one book in his library about the 16th president. I don't think the reader will be disappointed.

Refreshing focus on Lincoln and facts directly related to him, unbiased with no spin, unhidden opinions backed by facts, educational and easy to read, best Lincoln biography I have ever read.

This is a very excellent book. After having read it I felt that I knew President Lincoln and had a better understanding of the entire family. I really enjoy a book that makes things come out of the book and off of the page and to me this does the trick. excellent. I also recommend reading Mrs.Lincoln. You will understand Mary Todd Lincoln better.

a. lincoln is a well crafted biography on our 16th president. filled with lincoln family history,mezmorizing pictures and mind bottling prints of honest abes own writings. this biography brings its readers just a little bit closer to who abe lincoln was as a man.

A decent portrayal of A. Lincoln using his own words. I found it fascinating that politics has not changed much since Lincoln's presidency.  This book did not who Lincoln as being perfect or loved by everyone. When things went badly during the war, the public abandoned him. He was not the nicest person to be around with. He was singled minded and focused on one task at a time. The book shows he was too t trusting of people and did not listen to his instincts. The book is well rounded showing not only Lincoln's views but the public's view through  newspapers articles and editorials.

Great read if you want the detailed and non glorified version. Lincoln was more intelligent than I even imagined and a man of amazing character. Awesome book for history buffs, but beware...it is long!
