I would highly recommend this book for both believers and unbelievers. The author handles homestly and fairly some of the well known contradictions in Freuds beliefs and nature. The discription of both mens' journey to atheisim is very similar (even a little scarily so) to my own journey. Some the reasoning of Lewis' journey to belief are also similar to my own. This may be part of the reason why the book struck such a nerve with me.
This book is rather Pro-Jefferson but not real bad. At some points it is a little shaky on historical ground. If you are only going to read one book on this period this should not be that book but if you are going to read several make this one about the 5th or 6th.
The book suffered a bit with revisionist history and some PC but not bad. It did a good job of reflecting the normal miscalculations on all sides that lead to most Wars. Alot of effort was made to make Washington look less Christian than his own writings did. But a good review of a war not much covered.
