Audio Book Summary

John G. Nicolay was Abraham Lincoln's private White House secretary. With assistant secretary, John Hay, he wrote the two volume definitive biography of Lincoln, "Abraham Lincoln, a Biography." Although this is a condensation by Nicolay of that biography, it is still a sizable work and a fairly thorough treatment of the life of the 16th president of the United States. Summary by John Lieder.

    very informative, although it think it was more about the Civil war than Abranham Lincom himself. Sometimes a bit heavy with too much detail description of the war, it seems to me.
