Doris Kearns Goodwin (Exclusively WSB)

Based on her longtime best-selling and award-winning book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln, esteemed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin presents audiences with essential, object and fresh lessons in leadership, political acumen and management strategy. By deeply examining Lincoln’s leadership style and keen understanding of human behavior, Goodwin makes the case for Lincoln’s political genius by explaining his skillful navigation of the "team of rivals" he constructed to achieve not only political success, but also victory in the Civil War. Underestimated as both an effective orator and leader, this ordinary and extraordinary leader surprised both his colleagues and critics as he rose to political prominence, and today is remembered as one of the greatest presidents of all time. Goodwin, whose Team of Rivals was the basis for Steven Spielberg’s award-winning film Lincoln, also shares stories about her involvement in the hit film that saw Daniel Day-Lewis so convincingly bring Abraham Lincoln to life for millions of moviegoers.

Doris Kearns Goodwin (Exclusively WSB)

A struggling economy. Two wars. A nation starving for leadership. One of America's most treasured historians, Doris Kearns Goodwin explores a momentous and raucous American time period as she brings Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and the Progressive Era to life, drawing from her bestselling and award-winning book, The Bully Pulpit. Goodwin keenly focuses on the broken friendship between Teddy Roosevelt and his chosen successor, William Howard Taft. With the help of the “muckraking” press, Roosevelt wielded the Bully Pulpit to challenge and triumph over abusive monopolies, political bosses and corrupting money brokers, leading a revolution that he bequeathed to Taft only to see it compromised as Taft failed to take hold of the public dimensions of the presidential role – never finding comfort in being Number One. The rupture between the two led Roosevelt to run against Taft for president in 1912, an ultimately futile race that resulted in the election of Democrat Woodrow Wilson and the diminishment of Theodore Roosevelt’s progressive wing of the Republican Party. Goodwin illuminates a remarkable time in our history that enlightened and changed the country, ushered in the modern age and brought some unforgettable men and women into the spotlight.

Leading presidential historian and biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin delves into the fascinating world of First Ladies, from Edith Carow Roosevelt to Nellie Taft, Eleanor Roosevelt, Jackie Kennedy, Lady Bird Johnson and Nancy Reagan, who paved the way for the rising political consciousness of women in the 20th century and for the real possibility of the first female president of the United States in the 21st century. With insight, wit, energy and eloquence, Goodwin appraises the history-altering influence of First Ladies, many of whom possessed leadership skills much needed in present-day politics. Singling out Eleanor Roosevelt, arguably the country’s most influential First Lady and a world-class leader, Goodwin examines how her courage, openness, empathy, ability to handle criticism with grace, and community building allowed her to further, with strength and confidence, the political, social and humanitarian causes that so mattered to her—championing civil rights, the rights of women and blacks, the poor and oppressed, workers, and youth as a newspaper columnist, author, diplomat and savvy politician. Delving into the powerful stories from First Ladies’ lives, Goodwin examines their legacies and timeless contributions that continue to set the standard for today’s leaders.
