8 CDs. Well, she explains the politics of Lincoln's nomination in 1860, and Chase's aborted attempt to be nominated in 1864 better than anyone else has done. Other than that, she doesn't cover much new, and she fawns over Lincoln (as do almost all biographers) to the detriment of other figures. The reader, Richard Thomas (Johnboy) doesn't help, reading McClellan's and Chase's words with a lilting haughtiness. Of course, no one else has much good to say about McClellan or Chase's character. A lot of history skipped over, but maybe that's because it's an abridgement.
