This man's life is a story of great value. It is an amazing way to learn about the beginning of the USA and understand in a truly deep way where so much of what we have came from, and is sure to inspire awe.
As usual David McCullough brings out little know facts to paint a vivid picture and bring the story to life. His descriptions of the characters allow you to understand their place in time and circumstance.
Life is too short to skip a great story, and ice cream.
I didn't know a history book can be so interesting, it reads like a great novel! Everything about the book is as described in Publisher's Summary. The narrator was amazing and managed to engage me for the whole 30 hours of this historical audiobook. A truly positive and inspiring experience!
Captured my attention from beginning to end, really felt like I was present and was overcome with emotion during challenging periods as if they were occurring in real time. A great work of bringing the past age to life in the present age.
This work far exceeded my expectations going into it. I learned immensely about the man and the time period, including a vast array of items that should have been taught to me in grade school but never were. It was a thorough enjoyment to listen to this book, benefited greatly by a narrator more than adept at handling such heavy material. Excellent!!!
Let this be the one. You will not regret the the time, nor the credit spent on this sweeping retelling of the life and times of John (and Abigail, who is worth the price of admission alone!) Adams. Wow.
Loved this book greatly. This is the 3rd founding father biography I've gone through. It is my favorite so far. It's long but trust that your effort and persistence will be well rewarded.
Story content outstanding. Noisy reader a problem. I will never listen to Nelson Runger read again.
