Publisher's Synopsis

"This is an invaluable, genre-defying book. Leavened with great humor, it treats Lincoln not only as a giant of history, but, far more uniquely, as the human we should all strive to be."

- Scott Turow, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Over sixty-thousand books have been written about him, and most give us the heroic Lincoln. What we need now is a book that gives us the practical Lincoln. This is that book.

More than at any time in American history, except perhaps Abe Lincoln's own, we need his help. And not just to inspire us.

How to Be Like Abe Lincoln shows us how to survive our dangerously fractious age, one that is too often unmoored from truth, ignorant of facts, and unwilling to do the hard work of becoming better. It is written for those who don't just admire Lincoln but want to emulate his rational, practical approach to law, love, leadership, and life. It identifies the seven steps that made Abe Lincoln legendary and teaches you how to follow them.

Written in the accessible, humorous style of Shapiro's previous books and television shows, How to Be Like Abe Lincoln is part history and biography, part philosophy, part memoir, part James Spader rant, and like Lincoln himself, a true original. Above all, it is great storytelling, using narrative to teach and inspire.
