David McCullough deserves the highest compliment that can be given to a biographer. He has made his subject come alive. I cried when Abagail died and again when John Adams died at the end of the book. It is as if I had lost a friend. But it is even more than a personal story. In this book John Adams becomes a window into the formation of the United States. All the major events and persons of those formative times are crystalized around the figure of Adams. The book could easily serve as an entire course of revolutionary American history.
