“This brilliant new book explores a subject that is especially poignant and urgent today: the rise (under six great presidents), and steady collapse since, of leadership and bipartisanship . . . . Lincoln’s Way seamlessly weaves a very sophisticated discussion of complex financial issues as well as cultural changes into the narrative . . . . This is an invigorating, astonishingly clear exploration.”
— Geoffrey Wawro, for History Book Club.
“A must-read for lovers of American history — a fresh and spirited presentation of some of our greatest leaders, with special emphasis on key ideas, presented in a broad intellectual framework. An unforgettable book.”
— pre-publication endorsement by James MacGregor Burns, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Roosevelt: The Lion and the Fox and Roosevelt: Soldier of Freedom
