I liked the tone the of the writing as well as the plot and openness to address the thinking and understanding of the epoch. To Those who find culture a cult this is a must.I truly fell in love to the father of America
Facilitating the creation and protection of legacy wealth
All the stories we've come to know, but insight into failures, doubts, and turmoil never discussed in high school history.
From start to finish this book captured the essence of Mr. Jefferson. It did not pretend that he was more or less than what he actually was. This country could use another Jefferson at the helm.
I've read/listened to biographies on Adams, Washington, and Hamilton, and each painted a negative picture of Jefferson. While this may err in the other direction, it is good to hear both sides of the discussion on one of our most important leaders. Meacham does attempt balance; he's not totally one-sided on TJ, so this is not propaganda, it's still good history. Well-written and narrated, it is worth the time.
If you are strictly looking for information given to you in a straightforward manner without any attempt to entertain the reader, then you will probably like it, but I like bios with some sense of tone, mood and basic writing craft. The author seems to often just regurgitate information with very little regard to order, organizational structure or storytelling that might please the reader.
