Ellis is a prominent historical writer; this book offers details on the founding fathers generation including Hamilton, Burr, Washington, Jefferson, etc.
This book provides several views of history in which the average person is unlikely to have access. An entertaining, historical read.
I had to read this book for school and I was pleasantly surprised by it. Even though it is non-fiction, it reads like a novel. It kept my attention better than any textbook would and I will most definitely read it again for pleasure!
Loved the subject matter, but the writing was a little over the top. He could have said things more succinctly, but I liked the research and organization. Definitely worth the read.
A great Pulitzer prize winning book. It develops the parts of the history of our founding that have been missing or forgotten. Goes into the thought processes of the "founding Brothers" ( Not fathers) and how they handled their relationships and what made them tick. From Washington to Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Hamilton and even gos into Burr and the duel. Really recommend it.
