It's no surprise that Steve Inskeep, of National Public Radio, narrates well. He has the practiced cadence and authoritative tone of a polished broadcaster. What is most satisfying about this audiobook is how compelling a listen it is. After all, his subject is Abraham Lincoln, the most studied and written about president in American history. Inskeep examines how the great man dealt with those he disagreed with (Stephen Douglas), those who were critical of him (Frederick Douglass), those who didn't follow his directions (General George McClellan), and those he had to soothe emotionally (his wife, Mary). The politics of today are illuminated in this fine, deftly narrated work. A.D.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2023 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
