The New York Times bestselling book about the early
development, growth, and exercise of leadership from Pulitzer
Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin “should help us raise
our expectations of our national leaders, our country, and
ourselves” (The Washington Post).

/>“After five decades of magisterial output, Doris Kearns Goodwin
leads the league of presidential historians” (USA TODAY).
In her “inspiring” (The Christian Science Monitor)
Leadership, Doris Kearns Goodwin draws upon the four presidents
she has studied most closely—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt,
Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson (in civil
rights)—to show how they recognized leadership qualities within
themselves and were recognized as leaders by others. By looking back to
their first entries into public life, we encounter them at a time when
their paths were filled with confusion, fear, and hope.

/>Leadership tells the story of how they all collided with
dramatic reversals that disrupted their lives and threatened to shatter
forever their ambitions. Nonetheless, they all emerged fitted to
confront the contours and dilemmas of their times. At their best, all
four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. At moments of great
challenge, they were able to summon their talents to enlarge the
opportunities and lives of others. Does the leader make the times or do
the times make the leader?

“If ever our nation needed
a short course on presidential leadership, it is now” (The
Seattle Times
). This seminal work provides an accessible and
essential road map for aspiring and established leaders in every field.
In today’s polarized world, these stories of authentic leadership
in times of apprehension and fracture take on a singular urgency.
“Goodwin’s volume deserves much praise—it is
insightful, readable, compelling: Her book arrives just in time”
(The Boston Globe).
