In large print, it's a massive 1,334 pages, and weighs about the same as a large brick. Not readily manageable by the typical person who might need large print when reading.
This suggests it needs less words (author take note) or two-volume formatting (publisher take note).
Either way, readers should be aware of its challenging mass.
I found the book lacking in insight. There is far more to be known about Jefferson than is revealed in this book. To understand Jefferson better you need appreciate the extent of the hypocrisy that defined him. As a companion to this book I would suggest Annette Gordon-Reed's book "The Heminges of Monticello" and of course Ron Chernow's classic "Alexander Hamilton. Jefferson is apparently recognized as the primary author of the Declaration of Independence. If so that was probably the high water mark for this overrated American patriot.
Excellent biography of Jefferson and his times. Couldn't put it down!
Y'all have no idea how boring this book is.
An interesting narrative with an epistolary contingent that is very readable. An excellent biography. Worth reading if you are interested.
I cannot imagine a better biography of Jefferson. It's very readable, and well worth your time.
I've been trying for 30-45 minutes to renew Thomas Jefferson and going in circles .I've done this before with no problem. What's with this crappy system?
Hard to imagine that a biography of a historical figure could be considered a page turner, but I really had a hard time putting this book down. This is a well written, fascinating account of this very influential man's life.
