About this title:
Synopsis:
Winner of the 1992 Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Lincoln at Gettysburg, Garry Wills now considers one of history's most emotionally charged topics: Leadership. Presenting portraits of FDR, Ross Perot, King David, Martha Graham, and many others, Wills offers a lens for studying society and ourselves.

About the Author:
Garry Wills is an Emeritus Professor of History at Northwestern University. Born in Atlanta in 1934, he has taught widely throughout the United States. A prolific writer and scholar, Wills is the author of more than twenty books, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Lincoln at Gettysburg, Papal Sin, and What Jesus Meant. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

From AudioFile:
Political commentator Wills undertakes to study leadership as manifested by people widely separated by time and place: King David, George Washington, Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. for example. His writing is excellent, as usual, but he was not the right choice as narrator; his voice is too pedestrian, too measured and unexcited to make a book like this come alive. His voice carries scholarship without the fire; though one suspects the fire is there, he's not the one to convey it orally. Select this one for its content, not its style; the insights Wills offers are often unusual. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
