Abraham Lincoln stands out as one of the most courageous and memorable leaders in American history. During Mr. Lincoln's days in the White House he was called upon to sail the ship of state during the terrible years of the Civil War. In those trying times President Lincoln acted in ways that revealed intuition, practicality, flexibility, dedication, mental agility, and many other qualities that characterize outstanding leaders. In an age when on a daily basis both public and private sector leaders are confronted with penultimately difficult choices, the words and wisdom of this great man continue to be of value. In "Leadership & Lincoln" readers are presented with 100 quotations taken from the writings and speeches of this demonstratively wise person. Each quote is accompanied with an instructive and reflective essay that is aimed at placing Lincoln's words in modern context. This combination of the past greatness of Mr. Lincoln with modernistic food for thought affords forward-thinking leaders with reflection points that can be of great help in the world they live and work in. In this way Leadership & Lincoln provides contemporary leaders with a set of valuable ideas to place in their intellectual toolbox.
