The bestselling and prize-winning study of one of the most legendary American Presidents in history, "Team of Rivals" by Doris Kearns Goodwin is the book that inspired Barack Obama in his presidency.

(Barack Obama). "A portrait of Lincoln as a virtuosic politician and managerial genius". ("The New York Times").

Her works include "Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream", "The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys: An American Saga", and No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt", for which she won the Pulitzer Prize for History in 1995.
