The Unknown Lincoln
Lowell Thomas says: "The most amazing story in American history. It is a Lincoln book that perhaps could not have been written until today–and a book that no man can read without profit. I know of no other short work on Lincoln which presents so much of him and presents it so unforgettably."
Homer Croy says: "It's a wonder! I've always been a Lincoln bug and have read many volumes on him. This comes nearer to making Abraham Lincoln a living, breathing human being than any book that I have ever read. This book takes Lincoln out of the sky, moves him into the house next door and makes a neighbour of him. He's as human as a pair of overalls flapping on the clothes-lines."
Lincoln the Unknown is a biography on Abraham Lincoln, written in 1932 by Dale Carnegie. It is published by Dale Carnegie and Associates, and given out as a prize in the Dale Carnegie Course.
I read the series with profound interest-and surprise.I had spent the first twenty years of my life in the Middle West, not far from the Lincoln country; and, in addition to that, I had always been keenly interested in United States history.I should have said that of course I knew Lincoln's life-story; but I soon discovered that I didn't.The fact is that I, an American, had had to come to London and read a series of articles written by an Irishman, in an English newspaper, before I realized that the story of Lincoln's career was one of the most fascinating tales in all the annals of mankind.
