I recently started reading famed historian Doris Kearn Goodwin’s book, “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln”. I’m only about 150 pages in to this 900+ page tome, but I’m finding it tough sledding. I’m familiar with her from the TV talk show circuit but I’ve never read any of her stuff before. Let’s just say that I’m not impressed with her writing style, though the book sure seems to have been well-researched.
Am I alone in not being a big fan of this book? Has anyone else read it, and, if so, what did you think of it?
