McPherson, The New York Review of Books "A fine, invaluable book...Certain to become essential to our understanding of the 16th president...Kaplan meticulously analyzes how Lincoln's steadily maturing prose style enabled him to come to grips with slavery and, as his own views evolved, to express his deepening opposition to it." - Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World Fascinating...persuasive [and] highly perceptive." - Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times From acclaimed biographer Fred Kaplan comes an illuminating look at the life of Abraham Lincoln that chronicles his genius with language.
