Enjoyed the book. Learned some new Lincoln history during a period, 1859, that set him up for the presidency. Worth every penny!

My wife grew up in Springfield. She always thought of Lincoln as her neighbor living on the same street on a few blocks away. This book really tells about Lincoln before he became President. After reading many Lincoln books this one shares what life was like for Lincoln to live and work in Illinois in the early 1800’s. It is like getting to know him as a person as well as a president. I hardly Put the book down until I finished reading it.

A little slow

I felt like an audience member while reading this book in two days. I could feel the emotional waves while Lincoln spoke during his opening and closing statements and held my breath during his examinations of the witnesses. I no longer need to wish to have been born in another century. Thank you.

Took a while, better second half than first. Great illustrations of time, location, and Lincoln before he was Lincoln.

Very interesting.

Very readable, interesting and a timely mirror on today's Republican policies and personalities. There is scant mention of Mary Todd Lincoln; several mentions during this book on Lincoln preferring to work rather than going home. The evolution of Honest Abe is detailed, and I hope, more accurate than not.

Was expecting to read a lot of Lincoln's actual words and arguments but there was very little. Found it quite boring
