Honest Abe was written to act as your easy reference point that contains everything you need to know about the life and times of Abraham Lincoln. Throughout the book, I have sought to paint the picture of the scenes I describe, so that this is more than an academic treatise. This book is meant to be more of a movie; a movie that plays out in your head as you hear its vivid details, so that you can feel that you were there as it was happening.
This is certainly a quick listen, but it is densely packed with information that so many historians tend to overlook. Lincoln's story is a gripping tale, from beginning to end. Given the massive nature of his accomplishments and the nearly six decades he lived, you might wonder how these words can adequately cover so much ground. This book will give you an excellent grasp of the man - as a son, as a younger brother, as a father, as a thinker, as a politician, and, of course, as our 16th president.
