Description

Jon Meacham’s biography of Thomas Jefferson looks at how the founding father balanced his ideals with pragmatism .

Jon Meacham’s biography of Thomas Jefferson looks at how the founding father balanced his ideals with pragmatism while also bending others to his will. This happened with American Sphinx, Ellis’s study of the character of Thomas Jefferson, which argued that the author of the Declaration of Independence and putative father of American democracy was also a scheming and even paranoid anti-monarchist, deficient in both wisdom and judgment, unlike his adversary, the stolid if unromantic Adams.

The writing style is old, and some of the comments are antisemitic. The history was interesting.

Thomas Jefferson harped on peace and limited government. He despised anything resembling a monarchy or social system. He had bitter foes. All sides made reasonable arguments, even if vehement in approach. Jefferson's writing ability and inclusive wisdom fueled his rise to the top. He disliked war and was an enemy of public debt. He lacked enough conviction for anyone to understand, truly, where he stood on religion and slavery. Reading this book, written a hundred years ago about a founding father that died a hundred years earlier, I could help but say to myself, "things never change." Public figures are subjected to bottomless scrutiny. Some findings are founded, some unfounded. Knowing the truth is near impossible. I choose to appreciate the factual good things Thomas Jefferson did. I recommend this book as a good supplement to classic history.

It is always so very rewarding to read about the life and the character of men who made a difference in the world. I brought the curiosity of child, who takes something apart to see what made it tick. I too wanted to know what are the characteristics that make a man several heads taller than the rest of his fellowmen. I was not disappointed.

This book presents the facts of Jefferson's life. It was written in the 1880's so the writing style takes a bit to get used to. It does gloss over some aspects of his personal life. But, if you want to learn about Jefferson and his era, this is one of the books you must read.

Not a gripping read and seems to focus on a select few areas of his life and completely exclude others, including some of his important relationships.

Very detailed and informative. However his language was of a 19th century writer so had to think and re-read certain sections.
The book contains a very detailed and presumably true review of Thomas Jefferson, but is not written in an interesting way. David McCullough would have done much better.
