    In this magnificent biography, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of American Lion and Franklin and Winston brings vividly to life an extraordinary man and his remarkable times. Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power gives us Jefferson the politician and president, a great and complex human being forever engaged in the wars of his era. Philosophers think; politicians maneuver. Jefferson’s genius was that he was both and could do both, often simultaneously. Such is the art of power.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone that didn't care about discovering the truth and wanted to discredit a great man.


    What could Jon Meacham have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    If the author had done a little research instead of passing on and promoting every undocumented lie concerning Jefferson.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When I turned off the book was the best moment. Unfortunately the book was well read so I kept hoping a few true facts would surface. I was continually disappointed.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power?

    I would have cut the entire book.


    Any additional comments?

    At least with a paper book I could have thrown it away and felt like I had given this book what it deserved . Just deleting the book from my computer seems insufficient.
