Publisher's Summary

The drama of the life of the second president of the United States has been stirringly chronicled both in print and on television. Yet, the life of John Adams is so rich in history, emotion, power, and tragedy that no medium can entirely contain its essence. Hearing the story of his life is to be introduced to a nation, new and untried, that would rise to prominence in no small part due to his legacy of leadership.

Inside you will hear about....

  • John Adams, the Farmer’s Son
  • John Adams Begins His Career
  • The Man from Massachusetts
  • Adams in Philadelphia
  • Destination Europe
  • An Experiment in Nationhood
  • President
  • A Friendship Restored

John Adams was no bland hero; he had his personal blemishes, and he made his share of mistakes. He was born in the Massachusetts Bay Colony and died a citizen of the United States. Along with his wife, the impressive Abigail Smith Adams, the minister’s daughter whose lack of formal education did not hinder her intellectual advances, John Adams sired a political dynasty that served the United States well.

great review

I am 75. Have not had any clear history for almost 60 years. The book served as an excellent foundation without attempting to advance any particular conclusion. easy listening.

Adams

Loved it. Been reading a couple off my kindle for a while. I really love books of presidential biographies and the history of that era and it just intrigues my mind learning of this country
