"Team of Rivals" is a brilliant, multi-million selling biography, now the inspiration for a major Stephen Spielberg film starring Daniel Day-Lewis. "A wonderful book ...a remarkable study in leadership". (Barack Obama). "The most uplifting book that I have read in the last two decades. Sensational". (Jon Snow). "Team of Rivals" shows how Abraham Lincoln saved Civil War-torn America by appointing his fiercest rivals to key cabinet positions. As well as a thrilling piece of narrative history, it's an inspiring study of one of the greatest leaders the world has ever seen. "I have not enjoyed a history book as much for years". (Robert Harris). "A brilliant book...I couldn't get enough of it". (Sir Alex Ferguson). "A fabulously engrossing, exciting narrative in the grand old style ...overflowing with colour and character". (Dominic Sandbrook). "A portrait of Lincoln as a virtuosic politician and managerial genius". (Michiko Kakutani, "New York Times").
