"...the best biography of Andrew Jackson available." (Library Journal)
" He portrays the president not as a symbol of the age nor a personification of proletarian striving, but as a shrewd and able politician..." (Political Science Quarterly)
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.
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.
