ABOUT THE BOOK:
Best-selling author, Pulitzer Prize winner and America's Historian-in-Chief Doris Kearns Goodwin's new book is a culmination of five decades of work in presidential history.
Combining her signature storytelling with essential lessons from four of our nations presidents Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson, Goodwin shows how they recognized leadership qualities within themselves and were recognized as leaders by other. She explores their unique journeys to as they navigated and grew through adversity, and she analyzes how they emerged to confront the challenges and contours of their times.
Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader?
No common pattern describes the trajectory of leadership. Although set apart in background, abilities, and temperament, these men shared a fierce ambition and a deep-seated resilience that enabled them to surmount uncommon adversity. At their best, all four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. At moments of great challenge, they were able to summon their talents to enlarge the opportunities and lives of others.
This seminal work provides an accessible and indispensable road map for aspiring and established leaders in every field. In todays polarized world, these stories of authentic leadership in times of apprehension and fracture take on a singular urgency.
