Thomas Keneally (2003)
Coming in at fewer than 200 pages, this small book is a little like sprinting through a high school American History class. But it’s so well written and the subject matter is so interesting, it’s definitely worthwhile. A concise overview of Lincoln’s life, without getting bogged down in all the minutiae of dates and detail. I’ll definitely keep my eye out for more biographies in this Penguin Lives series.
