What the community says about John Adams

  • Christopher Jimenez
    Written on March 12, 2018
    "As there are many biographies out there, needless to say, it is difficult to determine which ones are the absolute best, but this biography of John Adams is of truly excellent quality. Adams might not have the name recognition of other early presidents or founding fathers, but this book delves into various aspects of his personal life and sheds some light on his character. The average reader will probably learn quite a bit."

    "This founding father was one of the most interesting and important men in our history, so I can't think of many biographies that would be a better fit as a result on this query. The book is fantastic, too. I am very please with this suggestion."

    "John Adams is David McCullough's other book following the story of John Adams. McCullough has a way with words and painting a picture of the moment that he wasnt a part of. He makes history fun and vibrant as if it was unfolding right in front of you."

    "David McCullough is the best biographical writer there is. Even if you, like me, know very little about American history or John Adams, you will find yourself fascinated by the way McCullough writes about this great man. I found it very emotional and stirring and I wanted it to be even longer - the sign of a great book."

    "I read this book way back in my senior year of college (as fun reading!). It's an amazing, insightful history of a man. I wasn't even that big into history, but this book is a simply fascinating look of a man and how he shaped the country we know today."

    "I am not much of a reader but this book touched me in a way no book has. It gives a thorough description of our country's hardships. John Adams life was described in detail with sensitivity. I always found myself trying to take this book out everywhere I went. Must read for everyone. "

    "Gordon S. Wood The New York Review of Books By far the best biography of Adams ever written...McCullough's special gift as an artist is his ability to re-create past human beings in all their fullness and all their humanity. In John and Abigail he has found characters worthy of his talent."

    "One of the best historically correct presidential biographies written. Facts are proven out with this book and not hiding the unpleasant things. Written extremely well and gave me a new insight into Adams and his presidency."

    "A fantastic look at John Adams. From birth through Presidency until his death every part of his life is covered. A really intriguing read and I learned so much about the man and what he did for our country. "

    "As the 2nd President of the United States John Adams is somewhat known, but before this book, I would have thought George Washington was more important. Little did I know... This book has an excellent pace and it extremely readable for a history book. "

    "This is a must-read for anyone interested in the American Revolution. I would call this David McCullough's masterpiece, except I've read several of his remarkable books, including Truman and The Wright Brothers, and they are all so good I don't think I could pick a favorite. "
