This book read like a timeline of his actions and accomplishments - a Cliff Notes - a third grader's report on "What I did this summer". I must be spoiled afer reading the 2 volume bio (4 parts) of John Adams, the 2 volume bio of Teddy Roosevelt (The Rise of TR and Theodore Rex) and the excellent bio of Truman by David McCullough.
Hans Trefousse continually refers to Ari Hoogenbloom as a source of reference. When Ari's version comes out I'm getting it. Maybe everyone else should wait for that version, too. I was glad when this book was finished.
so you can 'debunk' her sources. I've only ever heard one side of the story and she lays out the other side and provides sources. I'd like to get the hardcopy myself so I can check her sources. I can't believe the negative reviewers listened to or read the book, I have.
