Biography & Autobiography. History. Nonfiction. HTML:The Pulitzer Prize??winning, bestselling biography of America's founding father and second president that was the basis for the acclaimed HBO series, brilliantly told by master historian David McCullough.
In this powerful, epic biography, David McCullough unfolds the adventurous life journey of John Adams, the brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot who spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution; who rose to become the second president of the United States and saved the country from blundering into an unnecessary war; who was learned beyond all but a few and regarded by some as "out of his senses"; and whose marriage to the wise and valiant Abigail Adams is one of the moving love stories in American history.

This is history on a grand scale??a book about politics and war and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, John Adams is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever

If you are looking for a one volume biography of one of the most important and influential of our founding fathers, you will be hard pressed to find one better than this. David McCullough not only makes John Adams approachable but he makes those that were intimate family and friends approachable as well. ( )

~2.5 stars. This was recommended for my via Goodreads algorithm because of another book I put on my TBR shelf. The description called it "enthralling" and so many of the top reviews just gushed over it and I really should read/know more history. But history just isn't my thing. There were plenty of places that I realized my mind was wandering when I was listening to it and I didn't rewind because I didn't really care. History is important but I'm not overly drawn to it. Overall I'm glad I listened to it so I have a little more background of this time frame but I wasn't excited to listen to it at any point. ( )

When I received this book, it had three things against it.
1-It was over 700 pages.
2- It was a gift book. (Generally, they seldom do much for me)
3- I wasn't interested in John Adams.

Turns out to be the best biography I've ever read. The writing is superb. I learned so much, not only about Adams, but about those he knew. The book gave me a much deeper appreciation for our founding fathers and the people of that time. I'm sure I will read it again.

Thanks to Woods Pierce for giving me this book. ( )

An abbreviated audio version of McCullough’s best selling book. McCullough doesn’t narrate (unfortunately), but Nelson Runger does a good job. Having seen the HBO mini-series from a few years ago, this book piqued my interest. Like all of McCullough’s books, this was both educational, informative, and entertaining. I highly recommend. ( )

Brilliant and lucid, this is another fine biogrpahy from the pen of David McCullogh. The life and mind of John Adams is presented with the resulting demonstration of his importance to the founding of the United States of America. ( )
