Lincoln's Melancholy: How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness

Lincoln's Melancholy: How Depression Challenged a President and Fueled His Greatness - Joshua Wolf Shenk Beautifully and compassionately written, the depiction of how Lincoln found meaning in his life not by overcoming his depression (pre Prozac, you know), but rather living through it, was truly inspiring. Highly recommended.
