This is a delightful, but remarkably thin historical volume from David McCullough who's biographies of John Adams, Teddy Roosevelt and Truman made these remarkable men more accessable to us than any other writer. This book presents short profiles of men McCullough sees as having shaped this country.

Excellent book! Of course, well written...McCullough never disappoints. But so many times I found myself thinking, "well, who knew?" Now I know...and you should too.

As usual, an absolutely fantastic, eminently-readable history book from David McCullough, touching on everything from the Brooklyn Bridge to pioneering pilots to the eccentric, wealthy Rothschild descendant who devoted her life to studying insects. A wonderful book.

I enjoyed this. History wasn't like this in school!

17 short pieces in 226 pages, quite different from each other (the ones I read), no real overarching theme, which is just fine.
