Just a recitation of facts

The book is incredibly boring. There is no sense of the founding fathers as people. There is no analysis, just a stream of facts in chronological order in gruesome detail.

A poor treatment

The book is a set of books about several founding fathers. It is filled with bad historical information that is false or misrepresented. The performances are very bad filled with mispronounced words and repeated misinformation. I would not recommend at all and I listened to the entire thing.

I haven't finished listening to it as of yet, but I do enjoy it. At times it seems a 'little dry', but that may be material or author.

A hard one and over flattering. But not all were not undoubtedly brilliant men but rather political and nonetheless brave.

Exceptional

Exceptional compendium of the nation's early history. Having all the early forming documents in one place makes study easy. Reading the brief biographies of the great men who set us on the transformative course is refreshing and informative. In modern times we need to better appreciate the past and path that led us to today.

A Quick Book

Each chapter a quick one. Suitable for waiting in a doctor's office or when the wife is shopping. Information I should know, but don't. Right price.

Great value

I believed it was well written and true historically. The quotes were enlightening and returned to life the true character of President Lincoln and the issues he was facing at that time in history.
