Abstract:

Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin is one of the great popularizers of presidential history. Her books on Lyndon Johnson, the Kennedys, and the wartime Roosevelts all became best-sellers thanks to her ability to tell a truly human story around these larger-than-life men and women. Her latest book, Team of Rivals, follows Abraham Lincoln, a brilliant young country lawyer, as he rises to the U.S. Presidency and draws his former political opponents into his circle of advisors (her book is slated for one of Steven Spielberg's next films). Her fascination with baseball was the subject of her beloved memoir Wait Till Next Year. In this TEDTalk, Goodwin discusses what we can learn from American presidents, including Lincoln and Johnson. She also shares a moving memory of her own father and of their shared love of baseball.
