In this powerful, epic biography, David McCullough unfolds the adventurous life journey of John Adams, the brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot who spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution; who rose to become the second president of the United States and saved the country from blundering into an unnecessary war; who was learned beyond all but a few and regarded by some as "out of his senses"; and whose marriage to the wise and valiant Abigail Adams is one of the most moving love stories in American history. This is history on a grand scale -- a book about politics and war and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, John Adams is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.

What do you know about John Adams? Probably not as much as you should. As one of our Founding Fathers, Adams had exceptional courage to step forward and do the right things in the midst of the Revolution. He served overseas for 10 years as ambassador to France and England, also negotiating with t...

i'm a little surprised and ashamed at how little american history i remember. to that end, this book is full, full, full of rich details (how else does it get so long?) but some of them are more personal details (what someone looked like or was wearing) rather than details relevant to the time and ...

Worth reading. It made me contemplate a lot and it really made me feel inferior. He managed to do so much. If you get into it you'll start thinking about your life and the things you can do to make yourself a little more useful in this world. (Warning, it will make you want to go to Boston).
