3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Robert Kirk VINE VOICE on October 23, 2011
I throughly enjoyed the author's work in explaining Jefferson's view of liberty, freedom, and religion. Many great references to the readings that Thomas Jefferson did as a younger man and you can tell how some of his thought process developed. My favorite part of the book was Jefferson's ideas about religion and christianity. Very revealing and interesting because so many people think all the founder fathers were very religious. It's not a long book but it is well written and seriously keeps your interest throughout the 190 pages. In summary, a great book to learn about an amazing person and how he came about living his virtues.

American Virtues is an excellent review of one the greatest Presidents in American history. President Jefferson had great insight into human nature and what it takes for citizens to be self-governing, as set forth in this book.

I found this book to be far too detailed in analyzing and comparing the moral guiding precepts of Jefferson. Jefferson was an enigma in his often contradicting beliefs and practices. I had hoped this book would have more concisely elaborated on these inconsistencies with fewer words. I stopped reading the book after a few chapters.
