filled with inaccuracies

if you want a book that gives you an accurate look at these 18th century figures, walk on by this one. there are so many inaccuracies, I don't know where to start. and what worries me even more are the ones that I invariably missed. 0/10, would trash again

Great history

Stories were excellent. Narration was great except for George Wash. Could hardly listen to him.

Just a recitation of facts

The book is incredibly boring. There is no sense of the founding fathers as people. There is no analysis, just a stream of facts in chronological order in gruesome detail.

A poor treatment

The book is a set of books about several founding fathers. It is filled with bad historical information that is false or misrepresented. The performances are very bad filled with mispronounced words and repeated misinformation. I would not recommend at all and I listened to the entire thing.

A great primer

There is plenty of repetition of historical facts presented throughout the books.

There is not a lot of depth in relation to the individuals discussed.

This is a great primer for those not familiar with the individuals.
