I suspect this biography was written for teenagers, and it will satisfy their attention spans while getting the homework done. The reader does not get much more detail about Jefferson than I picked up in my junior high school American history class. Not bad, but Thomas J. deserves more attention, especially as to his rivalry with Hamilton, his political positions on issues of his day, and on slavery. All three subjects were all but glossed over.
This should have come with a warning that it was for children. I wish that I had listened to the sample, or more, that I was able to return it. This is the only Audiobook that I ever heard that I could not listen to for more than 5 minutes--and that took a lot.
