Booktalk: Doris Kearns Goodwin’s “Leadership: In Turbulent Times”

Pulitzer Prize-winning Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of Leadership: In Turbulent Times, is one of America’s best known and most award-winning biographers of presidents.

She’s written 7 books about US presidents over five decades. She says that examining these men (Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson) through the lens of leadership through their turbulent times made her feel as if she were meeting them for the first time. And why did she write this book now? It may not be what you think.
