"The best biography of Andrew Jackson available." -- Library Journal
"Persuasive and well documented." -- Political Science Quarterly
"Remini, an old hand at unraveling the politics of this era, writes with assurance and cuts through hoary legends.A stimulating reassessment." -- Choice
The writing is very well done - the book was always interesting and kept me engaged.
Professor Remini's book, Andrew Jackson, is a well written and interesting biography of one of our greatest presidents.
This criticism highlights how Whig myths have come to permeate the historical writing on this subject.
The author certainly knows his stuff but don't purchase this expecting a thorough biography. This is definitely the 'cliff notes' of Andrew Jackson. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Fable Fan
An excellent read, a little light compared to some other presidential biographies but succinct and easy to read.Published 1 month ago by holly glickler
Great book! Kindof short in terms of presidential bios - I see that there is a longer version out there and perhaps I would have chose that one instead. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Kat
The content was well written and gives a personal touch to a figure we usually only hear about in a cold, textbook manner. Read morePublished 14 months ago by brandirhoads
It is somewhat brief, and I can see why others say that it seems biased toward Jackson. However, I think it is a great introductory read on a president that shaped an era.Published 22 months ago by Jonathan Roach
Like Theodore Roosevelt, I've always had mixed views of Andrew Jackson. I admire many things Old Hickory did on the battlefield and in office, but also question others. Read morePublished 23 months ago by NA Miles
