The listener should be aware of what this audiobook is not: it is not an academic work, nor intended for professors, nor a complete long study of the subject. It is intended for students, teachers, parents, and interested parties. If this one-hour audio interests you as it has others, this will provide a gateway to longer works on this subject and related ones if you are so interested. Otherwise, this has been quite enough information for most listeners, who report relistening to it several times. The source of this audiobook was a live lecture, and it has all the immediacy of one, complete with background noise!This information will furnish you with source material and give you a fuller understanding of Jefferson's life. These are the subjects covered:

  • A summary of Jefferson's life
  • Jefferson's education and early life
  • His political career from 1774 to 1800
  • The presidential campaign of 1800
  • The presidency, 1801-1809
  • The Louisiana Purchase, signed May 12, 1803
  • The Lewis & Clark Expedition, 1803 to 1806
  • The founding of Virginia University, 1819 to 1825
  • Jefferson the man: his appearance, temperament, and family
  • Jefferson's political philosophy
  • The Adams-Jefferson correspondence
  • Jefferson's death and epitaph
  • A reading of the Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom

      "highly disappointed"
      What disappointed you about Thomas Jefferson?

      Sound quality was poor and the speaker's performance was below average. $3 is too much to pay for stuttering, random pauses, and pronouncing words incorrectly. I will not make the mistake of purchasing from Great Thoughts or Deaver Brown again.
