The Best Books About Abraham LincolnTogether, they contained nearly 9, pages — almost twice as many as the president with the second-tallest stack of biographies in my collection Thomas Jefferson with about 5, pages. Although daunting for a new Lincoln admirer and probably more detailed than most readers will desire, this biography is extremely descriptive and consistently insightful. Because of its extensive breadth and depth of coverage this may not be the perfect introduction to Lincoln for some readers. But for anyone interested in Lincoln, this an excellent — perhaps unrivaled — second or third biography of Lincoln to read. Full review here.
