Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader? Historian 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. 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. No common pattern describes the trajectory of leadership. Although set apart in background, abilities, and temperament, these men shared a fierce ambition and a deep-seated resilience that enabled them to surmount uncommon hardships. 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.… (mere)

Yearning for a Rebirth of this Leadership
Dr Goodwin’s has written a truly stirring portrait of what real leadership is and how it manifests.
If you only have time for one chapter, don’t miss Chapter 9. However, the rest of the book is not to be missed. “Leadership” is organized into a three main section, each containing a chapter on each of Goodwin’s four presidential leaders, Lincoln, T. Roosevelt, FDR, and LBJ, for a total of 12 chapters. The first section recounts their early live, the second their rise to public life, and the third a demonstration of their leadership in troubled times. There is also a forward and epilogue.
The author has published extensively on all four of these presidents. So, there is little new in terms of biographical facts of which Dr. Goodwin’s readers are not already aware. Similarly, the coverage of their presidential leadership is not meant to be comprehensive. For instance, little is made of President Johnson’s profound lack of leadership in his handling of the Vietnam War.
Those of us who pick up this book and read it are left with a deep understanding of leadership on a world-stage scale looks like, and a fervent desire to sea such leadership addressing our current troubles. ( )

Goodwin looks at critical times in the Lincoln, Teddy & Franklin Roosevelt and LBJ presidencies. She builds a little history into what made each man - the road each traveled to the presidency and how those roads built their character and decision making. She then looks at the critical moment in each's reign and finally their final days on earth as each wrestled with the decisions made. It was a very interesting book, very well written. It left me hungry for more of each man than the small chapters of their presidency covered by this book, but a complete presidential biography was not the purpose of the book but rather how difficult times challenged them and how they rose above it to lead a nation through its ills.

In this work, Goodwin charts the lives of four influential US Presidents – Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Lyndon Johnson. Having written leading biographies previously of each of these, she combines her insights to profile the character of leadership, at least in an American form. She distills prior deep study of these presidents into an interwoven narrative that highlights how their personal narratives enabled them to meet the challenges of their times of leadership. In so doing, she leads us to understand how we can learn from and be formed by our life crises. Studying these events hopefully molds us readers to lead in our moments in our situations.

Most educated American adults know something of these leaders’ presidential history. What Goodwin does most effectively is to correlate their behavior in office to their individual histories before taking office. Further, she charts how their times after office and their deaths reflected the style of leadership they displayed during their respective seminal crises. As such, she does not merely focus on how each dealt with the crisis at hand; rather, she extends it towards a study of individual character – and the reflected character of the American people.

Written during the era of Trump (in which the nature American leadership seems to be questioned), this book displays a historical critique of this new style of “leadership.” By tying her analysis to leaders of change in American history, she seems to tacitly argue that this new style is neither progressive nor definitively American. Each of these presidents were progressive in their time, yet the changes they wrought have become central to subsequent American self-understanding. (Johnson’s principal change, in Goodwin’s telling, is limited to the Civil Rights Acts and does not extend to the Great Society, which had mixed results.) Turbulence marks the current era. What kind of leadership will emerge? Goodwin argues that a knowledge of history ought to inform our response.

This book has broad appeal, particularly among Americans and particularly among societal leaders. It entertains. It educates. It ties contemporary discussions to historical events. It discusses themes which most Americans deal with in their everyday lives. How do we choose to conduct our lives? How can we treat our neighbors with dignity? How should we proceed with self-government? Citizens of democracies all face these common problems. Goodwin’s individual biographies of these leaders have won critical accolades like the Pulitzer Prize. This work summarizes this erudition in an acceptable and interesting series of case studies. Almost any reader can learn how to navigate the future better through this map of well-told history. ( )

No tenia ni idea de la vida de estos cuatro presidentes asi que ha sido bastante informativo.
No me ha gustado que intentan tomar conclusiones positivas de todo lo que hicieron cuando evidentemente eran humanos y se equivocaron tanto como el que mas.
Pero aparte de esta mirada a la historia con gafas de color de rosa, lo demas esta bastante bien. ( )

The instructive nature of history feels apparent in this volume by Doris Kearns Goodwin. Comparing the lives, presidencies, and leadership styles of Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, FDR, and LBJ, this text calls attention to the similarities between these remarkable presidents, but also displays the differences in leadership each man. Still, each of these presidents suited their own tumultuous era and used their unique and hard-won abilities to guide the nation they governed. This book is not a summary of each man life or presidency; rather, significant events are examined in detail and other happenings are unmentioned. Those seeking comprehensive histories of any of these presidents should likely seek another book. However, this thoughtful examination of leadership in American history is a book well suited to the present and is a volume I would recommend for those seeking both history and context for contemporary American politics.
