The bestselling and prize-winning study of one of the most legendary American Presidents in history, Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin is the book that inspired Barack Obama in his presidency.

When 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 rival 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.

“Team of Rivals”

More of a historical text book than a page turner, but great if you are interested in democratic politics and the history of the USA. There were some pretty tedious parts of the book, particulalry at the beginning... More
