    Abraham Lincoln the greatest president we have ever seen This book provides an amazing biography about his early life and his humble rise to power It highlights both his struggles and his victories in an easy to read book filled with pictures to accompany the text I loved reading this book about my favorite president.

    A very informative and beautifully written book The author did a great job introducing the life of Abraham Lincoln from childhood to presidency to legacy It is rather challenging to distill so many important facts and interesting anecdotes into a concise and easy to understand book As the saying goes, Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication Only a deep understanding of the history and the man himself would make it possible Once again the author delivered an outstanding biography that exceeded expectations.

    I absolutely love learning about Abraham Lincoln I always forget that he did not have this fast rise to popularity and the presidency It was through his dedication to his beliefs and hard work that he got to where he was.

    This book is designed to appeal to a wide range of readers who want to learn things about Lincoln they may not have known are read in other biographies Packed with colorful and rare illustrations, Lincoln The Man Who Saved America is visually stunning and the writing is light and easy.The book begins with Lincoln s early childhood on the farm in Kentucky and follows him as the family moves to free state of Indiana We look at his rudimentary, most self taught education and the loss of his mother, then his sister Now an adult, Lincoln moves to Illinois and, after two flatboat trips to New Orleans, strikes out on his own in New Salem.Additional chapters delve into the beginnings of his life in politics, his loves and family, and his life on the circuit and as a lawyer in Springfield After being out of politics for several years, Lincoln is suddenly aroused as never before by passage of the Kansas Nebraska Act by rival Stephen A Douglas, which is destined to spread slavery into the territories and perhaps nation wide.Running for president is covered in a chapter, and there are two chapters covering Lincoln s struggles to save the Union during the Civil War The final chapter looks at his martyrdom and long lasting legacy.Lincoln The Man Who Saved America tells the story of a man who excelled beyond anyone s imagination, and who rose to power during the nation s most demanding trials Through easy to read language and with spectacular photos, cartoons, and drawings in a format that blends the best of vivid writing with a graphical novel feel, this book brings out the incredible man who saved America from itself.I am the author of this book I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it See also my earlier books, Tesla The Wizard of Electricity and Edison The Inventor of the Modern World.

    Good book on how events in Lincolns life helped shape his view on slavery and eventual rise to the US presidency Didn t care for interjection of authors political bias in last chapter, but otherwise it was well written.

    I absolutely loved this book It may help that I love Lincoln but this biography taught me a lot that I d never known before no spoilers you ll have to read it yourself Somehow, Mr Kent managed to fit everything from small details about Lincoln s childhood to his martyrdom into this richly illustrated bio It would delight the most well versed scholars and the readers who know nothing of the man The matter of fact style of writing, interspersed with beautiful paintings and early photography, portrays such a wide array of anecdotes, witticisms, and painful truths about Lincoln and his time Kent has produced a masterpiece, yet never idealizes him as many do but gives the full portrait of a man humble, flawed, and yet heroic He even worked in a brief lesson on the shifting political parties, and the topics have never been so pertinent as they are today This is a must read for any history buff or anyone looking to explore a new subject.
