"In this compelling biography, McPherson follows Abraham Lincoln from his early frontier days through his turbulent years in the White House. Roused to action by the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854, Lincoln joins the fledgling Republican Party. Running for U.S. Senate in 1858, he challenges Illinois Senator Stephen Douglas to a series of debates. Although Lincoln loses the race, his verbal jousts with Douglas give him the national attention necessary for a run at the White House. And in a four-way battle that splits the Democratic Party, Lincoln wins the 1860 presidential election without carrying a single Southern state-- leaving the nation teetering on the brink of civil war" -- container.

After listening to the 42 hours of 'Team Of Rivals', this seems rather trivial. But it is succinctly written.
