History Textbook

by Sapphire2 on Sep 24, 2014

This was like being in high school history class. I read maybe 1 chapter. Most boring book I read for our bookclub, and always loved history until this book.

Al S

Great read

by Al S on Dec 22, 2011

Really makes one understand how the political process works. Puts a human face on our founding fathers.The nitty details of what it takes to make the first true democracy work. Every high school political history class should read and discuss a segment of this book.

Reads like a good history, mystery, and philosophy

by Catnap1 on Apr 28, 2009

I have now purchased this title in CD, and two paperbacks. Whenever I try to explain the American character, I find myself referring back to this text and buying it as a gift. Because they did not know in advance that they would not end up hanging either together or separately, these American Revolutionaries behaved with the highest integrity possible and trusted each other's sense of honor and integrity. Character mattered because integrity mattered, and Ellis explores these historical greats' characters with wit, compassion and wisdom in prose that is easy to read and enjoy. From unravelling the mystery of who first pulled the triggter in the Hamilton-Burr duel to the final exchange of letters between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who died within hours of each other on the anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, this is a terrific read!

Ellis is phenominal

by cweller on Oct 19, 2008

Joseph Ellis does an exceptional job of bringing out the relationships between the early leaders of our country. He is able to personify the subjects allowing them to become more then mere facts in a textbook and provides remarkable insight into the challenges they faced.

Good book

by gatormash on Oct 4, 2007

It's a good book, very entertaining, but I am not sure how mr. Ellis came about some of his 'facts'. THe stories are good, but there are some holes that Mr. Ellis obviously speculated about. This should not be the last book someone reads on the founding fathers.
