What We Can Learn from Past Presidents

Appear­ing at the TED Con­fer­ence in 2008, Pulitzer-Prize Win­ning his­to­ri­an Doris Kearns Good­win talks about what we can all learn from Amer­i­can pres­i­dents, includ­ing par­tic­u­lar­ly Abra­ham Lin­coln and Lyn­don John­son. This is not anoth­er talk about what makes pres­i­dents great. It’s more about the bal­ance between work, love, and play, and how we can gen­er­al­ly be pro­duc­tive, shiny, hap­py peo­ple.
