    For a man who insisted that life on the public stage was not what he had in mind, Thomas Jefferson certainly spent a great deal of time in the spotlight, even in his retirement. In American Sphinx, Ellis sifts the facts from the legend to find the heart of the man who, at the grass roots, is no longer liberal or conservative, agrarian or industrialist, pro- or anti-slavery, privileged or populist.

    ks says: "Badly Scratched Record"
    "Extremely annoying editing"
    Overall

    The text of the book is fascinating as I have come to expect from Joeseph J. Ellis and Susan O'Malley does a wonderful job narrating. However, either the audiobook editing (or perhaps the audible compression) is horrendous. Every couple minutes a second or so is missing from the soundtrack making you guess the words that were supposed to be there. It takes a lot of patience to listen to, even though I'd really like to listen to the book.
