    1 thought on “Jefferson”

    1. An eye-rolling, white-washed (1942/abridged 1970) hagiographic partisan hackography of the ever virtuous, always correct, Saint Jefferson. For example, on returning to Monticello after having been offered the position of Washington's Secretary of State, Padover writes: "Never before had there been such jubilation as now took place when the master and his two attractive daughters arrived home. The Negroes had learned of the approach . . . and they streamed down the mountain in a frenzy of excitem [...]

    2. Amazing book on the life of an extraordinary man. Book clearly mentions that Thomas Jefferson to face the tug of war between his personal life and professional-political life. He was not only a politician but also a philosopher,scientist,mathematician,artist, architect etc. His job profile is extraordinary too. First secretary of state, Vice President number two and the third president of the United States of America.

    3. I'll start off my review by saying this: Jefferson is a good introductory biography of Thomas Jefferson. Having said that much, what does that mean? It means that this is neither best Jefferson biography out there nor is it the worst by any means either. Yet it is a good book nonetheless. Author Saul K. Padover makes this biography of Jefferson a nice read for the most part, though it does have some considerable flaws. It is detailed in some areas (Jefferson's early life and later life in partic [...]

    4. This was a very short and easy to read biography of the author of our deceleration. I found the last chapter talking about his last days to be the most intriguing. The details of his presidency were very well done and I especially enjoyed reading about his reunion with his old friend John Adams through their letter writing.

    5. Good and brief historical account of Jefferson's life. It sheds a clear light on his sensitive character and on his passion for a true democratic nation, freed of monarchical and despotic control.

    6. An easy to read biography of our third President. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to know more about one of our Founding Fathers.

    7. My Mentor paperback is an abridged edition, which may be why it seems to gloss over some events too quickly. Like a Landmark book for adults, a solid bio, but not definitive.

    8. This book started me on a TJ jag that lasted for years and led to probably a dozen other Jefferson books.
