(CBS News)Editor's note: A message to readers from "Team of Rivals" author Doris Kearns Goodwin:

"I am thrilled that 'Team of Rivals' has been selected to inaugurate the new 'CBS This Morning' Reads program. The journey for the hardback began with an early Charlie Rose interview, so it's particularly fitting that he is an integral part of the book's next chapter that also brings it to the big screen."

"Team of Rivals" is published by Simon & Schuster. Simon & Schuster and CBS are owned by the same parent company.
