An inside interpretation, based on writings of one of the framers of American politics and the person who wrote the original Declaration of Independence.
Not an "easy" read as there is heavy usage of French and Latin terms throughout the book.
This book does not always shine a positive light on this former president and statesman, but it does bring out the human side of Jefferson, pointing out his strengths as well as his failings.
Being a practical person, I felt this book was about 2 clicks above my reading and comprehension level.

Thomas Jefferson as you many have never seen him. It is a psychological biography exploring the complexies of the personality of a founding father.
