    Destiny of the Republic:

    Best book I have read in this genre. History at its best. Miles ahead of O'Reilly and "Killing Lincoln." Well researched and tightly written, keeps you interested and focused through the entire book. Would recommend to anyone.

    Excellent

    I knew very little about James Garfield, now I would like to read more about him beyond his death. I thought each part of the story was well covered. Unfortunately, since this is a real life event, while these things were going on at roughly the same time, they do not converge like you would hope. Still, the insight into the advances in medicine and science that were happening at this time, and how those things were resisted by the establishment were very interesting to read about. I would highly recommend this for those interested in narrative nonfiction.

    Destiny of the Republic

    Wonderful exposition of Victorian medical practices , which more than the assassin's bullet were responsible for the death of president John Garfield. The "witch" doctors of the time snuffed a noble sprit who, quite probably, would have given us another Lincoln like presidency. We needed excellence in administration then, as we do now. An excellent read!
