    Volumes have been written about George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson, but no previous work captures the intimate and vital details the way Inventing a Nation does. Vidal's consummate skill takes you into the minds and private rooms of these great men, illuminating their opinions of one another and their concerns about crafting a workable democracy.

    Qbook says: "Cynical But Good"
    "OK, I guess...."
    Overall

    I found the information interesting, but I had issues with Vidal's frequent 'editorial' injections, and by the end of the book I was really annoyed with the readers' constant swallowing.
