    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.

    "No one could make this up."

    In an age when most media fail to supply any depth to issues, this book defies that trend. Whether you love Jefferson -- or hate him -- it is important to understand his life in the context of his time.

    Author of the beloved Bubbles Yablonsky mystery series, Sarah Strohmeyer treats listeners to an entertaining novel about making it in hard times. Kat, a compulsive consumer at New Jersey's many malls, loves to shop until she drops - and it's taking a heavy toll on her marriage. Why else would her husband be using a secret bank account of his own? Finally, Kat is persuaded to join the Penny Pinchers Club. But there is such a thing as being too thrifty.

    Kathleen says: "Amusing"
    "Skip it."
    Overall

    I disliked this book; I don't agree with the sense of life of the protagonist. The message is: man is a pawn of his circumstances with no free will.
