5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST BIOGRAPHY I'VE SEEN ABOUT THOMAS JEFFERSON---, July 17, 2002
This review is from: The Real Thomas Jefferson (American Classic Series) (Paperback)
---In ONE volume!!
What is so good is that Andrew Allison completely documents his history so that you get a really clear view of Thomas Jefferson. I also appreciate the fact that the author doesn't pander to the sleaze that so many authors resort to in order to make a few extra sales. In fact he shows why the recent smear tactics on Jefferson are fraudulent.
THREE CHEERS FOR ANDREW ALLISON FOR HIS COURAGE TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT JEFFERSON!!!
The last 330 pages of text contain quotations from Thomas Jefferson himself on many different subjects. Each of these quotations is placed alphabetically according to the subject that it deals with. This way a reader can use this book as a reference to look up what Thomas Jefferson believed on any particular issue. This last section of the book was prepared by Cleon Skousen, Richard Maxfield and Delynn Cook, and is, by itself, worth the price of the book.

Hello,
Please excuse... I am messaging from my friend's computer.
I am Jayne D'Alessandro-Cox, the author of a new book on Thomas Jefferson, which was just released in December 2013, entitled THOMAS JEFFERSON-FROM BOY TO MAN. It is like no other book on Thomas Jefferson, and there are many of them out there, as you know. My book is solely about his first 31 years... the "early years". It is a biographical, autobiographical, and historically accurate account of his childhood, adolescence, and journey to manhood. It is partially written in journal form by Jefferson, and supplemented with background text to further inform the reader. It is an easy read, not bogged down with heavy sentence structure, while it is still very informative and enlightening. It truly fills in many of the gaps and mysteries that surround Thomas Jefferson, a man of many contradictions, and how this 18th century man could become the iconic founding father that he was, and more.

I believe that in order to understand this man of the enlightenment, it is important to understand him as a boy. I cannot tell you how many people in my town of Charlottesville (where Thomas Jefferson was born and eventually built his Monticello) have enjoyed this book! For the most part, although there is much information in the book that people are familiar with, there is just that much info, and more, that people never knew, and that is what is making this book such a popular read! My research was extensive and thorough.

I wanted to inform you about this new release, since you are a Jefferson enthusiast, like myself. It can be purchased through me directly (signed) by emailing me at jaynedals@aol.com, or it can be purchased thru Amazon, B&N.com., or my publisher's web site www.tatepublishing.com. To read more about this book, my others, and about myself, please visit the book web site www.jaynedalessandrocox.com .

I invite you to pick up a copy, and know you will enjoy it! Feel free to email me.

Sincerely, Jayne D'Alessandro-Cox jaynedals@aol.com www.jaynedalessandrocox.com
