John Adams

   by David McCullough

Hollywood has made John Adams and American history sexy again, but don’t cheat! Read this meticulously researched biography before watching the miniseries starring Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney. Here a preeminent master of narrative history takes on the most fascinating of our founders to create a benchmark for all Adams biographers. The author is likewise brilliant in portraying Adams’s complex relationship with Jefferson, who ousted him from the White House in 1800 and with whom he would share a remarkable death date 26 years later: July 4, 1826, 50 years to the day after the signing of the Declaration.
