If I had to pick one thing I liked about this book, it would be the way I learned more about a humble, competant, brilliant and good man. Of course, it doesn't take much for me to love Abraham Lincoln, but this book gave me insight I had not known of before.
The biggest compliment I can give is, "As the book neared the end, I read slower and slower because I didn't want it to end. I am a naturally slow reader, but I was almost at a standstill at the end."
If you have a chance to read Team of Rivals I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. I especially want to recommend the last few paragraphs of the book and the story of Leo Tolstoy's experience. It is very telling of the world view of Abraham Lincoln.
