and his research team pull from all the myriad of sources background information and place it in a
narrative makes the read both interesting -- and highly information.
Upon finishing the book one has a much greater appreciation of the tenacity and dedication of Adams
and his cohorts.
Another McCullough classic!
It was very interesting how he handled so many unprecedented events. As the 1st Vice President how should one conduct themselves? As there was no guide on what to do he actually presided over the Senate in most sessions! He won the first contested election for president and then had to figure out how to conduct oneself as the first president not to win re-election.
There isn't much I can say that the other 1000 reviews on this book haven't already said. I found it a great read, a good biography that really draws you into the life and times John Adams experienced.
