Doris Kearns Goodwin
In Conversation with Roy Eisenhardt.
Pulitzer Prize winner Doris Kearns Goodwin has written a new book, Leadership in Turbulent Times which is a culmination of five decades of work in presidential history. Combining her signature storytelling with essential lessons from four of our nation's presidents--Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson--Goodwin explores their unique journeys to recognize themselves as leaders, demonstrates how they navigated and grew through adversity, and ultimately analyzes how they emerged to confront the challenges and contours of their times. Goodwin's interest in leadership began more than half century ago as a teacher at Harvard.
