Great Book

by Linda L on Apr 11, 2014

This is a great audio book about a Great Man and his wife. I hated to hear the end. Reader was excellent.

Fantastic biography

Great Read

by Kurt G on Oct 11, 2012

David McCullough is one of my favorite authors and this book makes history alive. This should be required reading for high school students.

Great Information and a Little Known President

by TimB1124 on Mar 24, 2011

The TV series introduced many people to John Adams. A complicated man, Adams contributed a great deal to the founding of our country. If you know about Washington and Jefferson, why not learn about the "other" President. It's a long book, and not always an easy read, but it's well worth it.

"Reader's Companion"?

by Dan J on Nov 4, 2010

I did not read the description carefully and thought I was buying the John Adams biography. I wondered why the price was so low and I found out. It's NOT the biography, it's only a tiny book of information about the biography. I was very disappointed that it was not advertised more appropriately.
