Jon Meecham tells the story of Thomas Jefferson in a compelling, logical and very readable manner. When I finished this book I felt as though I knew Jefferson; with all his brilliance and foibles.
This book made me smile, frown and most importantly, think.
It struck me how few things have changed in American politics. The age of the American Revolution is so often romanticised, covering over all the partisan disputes, arguments and even duels. But there they are.
Jefferson lived in such a remarkable time and had such a remarkable influence on that time . . . and the time that followed. I'm not a great reader of biographies, but this book may change that.
Mr. Hermann did a wonderful job of narration.
