Team of Rivals

Currently reading this book by Doris Kearns Goodwin and seriously enjoying it. She knits her story together starting off from the morning when the Republican Party’s Presidential Candidate is to be announced in 1860 and introduces the ‘team’ that Lincoln was to bring together. I’m still in the early stages of the book, but so far it is an excellent read with a good background sketch of the characters and their lives up until the nomination race. I’d highly recommend this book even to those who don’t usually read non-fiction.
