Summary:
In this culmination of five decades that draws upon the four presidents, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson, 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. Nonetheless, they all emerged fitted to confront the contours and dilemmas of their times.
