Beschrijving

Written by a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, this multiple biography studies Abraham Lincoln's mastery of men. It shows how he saved Civil War-torn America by appointing his fiercest rivals to key cabinet positions, making them help achieve his vision for peace.

When Barack Obama was asked which book he could not live without in the White House, his answer was instant: Team of Rivals. This monumental and brilliant work has given Obama the model for his presidency, showing how Abraham Lincoln saved America by appointing his fiercest rivals to key cabinet positions. As well as a thrilling piece of narrative history, it's an inspiring study of one of the greatest leaders the world has ever seen.

'It is the season to compare Barack Obama to Abraham Lincoln. Two thin men from rude beginnings, relatively new to Washington but wise to the world, bring the nation together to face a crisis.

To a public thoroughly sick of partisan bickering, Lincoln's words rang with hope as Obama spoke them on election night before a vast crowd in Chicago's Grant Park ... ' - Newsweek

'A wonderful book . . . a remarkable study in leadership' - Barack Obama

'A portrait of Lincoln as a virtuosic politician and managerial genius' - The New York Times
