A really stellar accounting of the life of a fascinating man. If you have any interest at all in the American Revolution, you owe it to yourself to at least read the preview of this book.

Outstanding book. I found this book extremely insightful and educational. One thing I noted that I didn't realize before this book is that the author set out to write a dual biography about Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, and in some ways, this book comes off as such. Few men get as little recognition as John Adams, but are as worthy of the praise they do receive as John Adams.

One of the best American history books to pick up and read for both enjoyment and learning about how hard it was to start a Democratic government.
