"Jerry Hildenbrand has given us a wonderful collection of stories that will entertain and educate. They have a timeless quality and are very readable and easy to understand. I highly recommend this book.""Hildenbrand has done an exceptional job of translating the ancient wisdom of story telling into modern language. This is one of the best books on storytelling I have ever read."

In the early 1900s, Lincoln did not have the "big" stories to use to motivate and inspire millions who his success was helping.

He was able to reach an audience that says "Hey, I know exactly what I am talking about!" That's why every time Lincoln spoke
