For those who have already read several Jefferson biographies you can skip to the last three chapters. I don't think this book is as good as the Brodie biography. The last three chapters are interesting because they discuss the inconsistencies between Jefferson's beliefs vis a vis slavery, and his life as a committed slave owner.
I have read most of John Irving's books. This book is one of the best I have read...of any author. Owen will stay with you forever.
