"In this culmination of five decades of acclaimed studies in presidential history, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin offers an illuminating exploration into the early development, growth, and exercise of leadership. Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the man make the times or do the times make the man? ...Goodwin draws upon four of the presidents she has studied most closely--Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson (in civil rights)--to show how they first recognized leadership qualities within themselves, and were recognized by others as leaders."--Provided by publisher.

Opinion

From Library Staff

Adult Nonfiction. “With impeccable timing, the acclaimed historian focuses on the ways four presidents navigated the country through wrenching clashes and crises. In intimate, knowing ways, Goodwin crafts history as aspiration—or at least inspiration—for readers.” – Kirkus Reviews

While you wait for the newest, try "Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream" or "The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism.," or any other of Goodwin's books.
