Leadership: In Turbulent Times

Context. Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin knows how to present history to general readers: tell great stories to support key points and provide context for the time periods and people. She’s spent decades of her life researching and writing about four American Presidents who she calls “her guys:” Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. In her book titled, Leadership: In Turbulent Times, she uses the lens of leadership to examine the context in which these four men acquired the ability to help the country achieve great things. The presidents come alive through her writing and we understand their humanity and complexity. Their formative experiences in life, especially their struggles, provide them with the mettle to do a great job at leading a country through crisis. Readers who love history that’s entertaining to read should consider reading this terrific book. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Leadership in Turbulent Times from
