This is a very interesting, short book worth the time to read.
This is a very good book for obtaining a deeper understanding of Thomas Jefferson's moral character and personal philosophy.
To repeat, many of Jefferson's views were untenable, but I just don't think Ellis is truly unbiased in his analysis.
Wonderful insights and analysis of one of the most enduring figures in American history. The book gets slow and tedious at times, but it's last third are terrific. Read morePublished 6 days ago by Efox
