I'm still trying to get through this book. It's like 800 pages. I've enjoyed it as I've read it sporadically, but now it's getting really good. I'm just about to the point of Lincoln's nomination as the Republican candidate for president. Man that Lincoln worked hard! While one of the other contenders was touring Europe FOR EIGHT MONTHS (!!) and another was sitting at home writing a few letters, Lincoln was working for what he wanted and for what he thought was best.
What as inspiration toward hard work, rigorous thinking, and clarity of communication!
Lots of leadership lessons in Lincoln's life.
