Mike,

I've heard that, but I haven't watched it yet. I want to finish the book first.

Best
Rob

Just finished "Abraham Lincoln, The Times That Tried His Soul" by Emil Ludwig.

Old book, available for free on the Play Store.

Good historical biography, although some events might have been romanticized, but really enjoyed the reading. I devoured it in one night.

That's amazing, he was a German author who lived most of his live in Germany and Swiss, only during WWII in CA. I seem to remember his Lincoln bio was very popular in Germany in the 1930s (that is the amazing point, no one knows it nowadays over here), and I think there was also a play or radio program.

I just found it on Amazon (German original 1930 edition) at 3€...

Cool! Ahh-ha-ha - Weihnachtsgeschenk, schenk ich mir!  (Aber es geht leider die Richtung von viel zu viel.)

I'm trying to get thru 'Stamped from the Beginning' by Ibram X Kendi. 
(Before those books under the Xmas tree get added to the stack, gotta get through.)
