Doris Kearns Goodwin's masterful book Leadership in Turbulent Times. What makes this book so special is that it not only is jam packed with amazing leadership advice and perspective, but I found that it read like a novel.
The leaders and turbulent times are as follows:
- Abraham Lincoln - Emancipation Proclamation & Civil War
- Teddy Roosevelt - 1902 Coal Miners' Strike
- Franklin Roosevelt - The Great Depression
- Lyndon Johnson - Post Kennedy Assassination & Civil Rights
