A biographical portrait of Abraham Lincoln and his three rivals (during his race to become republican Presidential nominee). Abraham Lincoln, a man with little experience of running a government is the least favourite candidate for the Republican nominee. By sheer luck and political strategy, he got himself nominated for the Presidential candidate. Soon after, he became the President of the United States. This book follows the problems that Abraham Lincoln faced during his term. The genius of this book is how Abraham Lincoln solved some of the greatest challenges the country ever faced, by remaining true to his core values, and by his innate political genius. In contrast, many other politicians (even today) would melt down their core values at the first sight of danger.
