John Adams in Vivid Colors

Quite possibly one of the most imaginative and fully realized pieces of biography that I have ever read, John Adams present the portrait of a man in all his shades and colors, with his triumphs and his disappointments.

David McCullough is an excellent writer, but he never allows his brilliant prose to do the hard work of historical research.  He lets the facts speak for themselves, creating both a well-written and largely accurate book about the role John and Abagail Adams played during the American Revolution.
