Abstract:

"Ae leadesr born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the man make the times or do the times make the man? [Here], Goodwin draws upon four of the [Presidents] she has studied - Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson - to show how they first recognized leadership qualities in themselves, and were recognized as leaders by others. By looking back to their first entry into public life, when their paths were filled with confusion, hope, and fear, we can share their struggles and follow their development into leaders."--Back cover.
