Publisher's Summary

Considered by many to be the authoritative biography on Andrew Jackson, Robert Remini's examination reviews in depth the political career and personal life of one of the country's most memorable leaders. It is the definitive summary of a man who in turn defined an era, captured in a form that would appeal to both novice students and learned history buffs. It tells the Jackson story the way it should be told, giving a sense not just of Jackson's policies and actions but a sense of the man himself and the personality that drove him.

    "The abridged paperback"

    The abriged paperback was very good. It portrayed a great era in American History and made Jackson come to life without too much overwhelming reading. I would love to read the entire anthology, but having read the single volume abridged version it is time to move on. I recommend this unabriged audio version since it the whole version Remini wrote and is THE authoriatative version on Jackson. His abridged version has made Jackson one of my favorite presidents to date.

    "Remini's Andrew JAckson"

    This was a skeletal biography in the worst sense. It only covered the largest events of his life and these poorly. I have read the Brandt biography, and this is not worth the money or time.
