Publisher's Summary

Thomas Jefferson was one of the men who helped to bring the United States into being, and he shepherded the country through some of the most dynamic political years in its history. It is possible that without his brilliance, the fledgling democracy, the first in the world since the end of Ancient Greece, may not have survived its first few trials by fire.

Inside, you’ll listen about:

  • Born to Privilege
  • Marriage and Monticello
  • Revolution and Nation Building
  • Presidency
  • Second Term
  • Return to Private Life
  • Legacy
  • The Measure of a Man
  • And much more!

Jefferson was a scientist, fascinated by the development of new crops and scientific agricultural techniques. He was an architect who helped to promote the popularity of neo-classical and Neo-Palladian architectural forms. He was a prodigious writer, a linguist who mastered several languages, and a naturalist who studied birds, wine, natural bridges, and soil conditions. Thomas Jefferson improved many contemporary inventions, adapting them to his needs.

A Flawing personality.

That such an idealist could be so pragmatic simply makes him more inspiring to me. The Declaration of Independence remains the most inspiring political ideal ever penned.

Excellent

This book is fantastic from a bibliographical prospective. Extremely detailed. A person really passionate about Jefferson would like it!
The usual reader is lost in too many letters and details about day to day life, and lose the great ideals that drive Jefferson's life.
