Synopsis:
The Pulitzer Prize-winning historian sheds new light on America's second president, chronicling the life and times of Adams's youth, his career as a Massachusetts farmer and lawyer, his marriage to Abigail, his rivalry with Thomas Jefferson, and his remarkable influence on the birth of the United States of America.

Review:
"[C]ombines scholarly research with the readability of historical fiction."

Don McLeese, Book, May/June 2001

Review:
'[A] lucid and compelling work....Writing in a fluent narrative style that combines a novelist's sense of drama with a scholar's meticulous attention to the historical record, Mr. McCullough gives the reader a palpable sense of the many perils attending the birth of the American nation and the heated, often acrimonious politics of the day. He conveys the momentousness of the actions undertaken by Adams and other members of the revolutionary generation, as well as the daunting odds against them, not only in winning independence but also in establishing a form of government that would endure across the years.
What comes across most insistently in this absorbing book is a sense of Adams's exuberant, conflicted and thoroughly engaging personality: an ambitious, sometimes vain statesman who was also a devoted family man; an astonishingly well-read intellectual who could see "large subjects largely" but who took his greatest pleasure in the simple chores of farm life; a politician who almost always spoke his mind."

Michiko Kakutani, New York Times, 05/22/2001

Book Description: Simon Schuster Ltd, United Kingdom, 2001. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 240 x 170 mm. Brand New Book. His first book since Truman, from one of America s most distinguished and popular biographers. Destined for the same kind of sweeping success as his Pulitzer Prize-winning Truman, John Adams is a powerful, deeply moving biography that reads like an epic historical novel. Breathing fresh life into American history, it takes as its subject the extraordinary man who became the second president of the United States. A man whose adventurous life and spirited rivalry with Thomas Jefferson encompasses both the American Revolution and the birth of the young republic. Deftly written with a brilliant eye for detail, McCullough describes the childhood, youth and coming of age of Adams, the fiercely driven Massachusetts farmer-lawyer whose marriage to Abigail is one of the great real-life love stories. He also tells the story of his lifelong rival Jefferson, the Virginia planter and slaveowner. Through their lives, McCullough explores the extraordinary factors that transformed thirteen colonies into an united nation that eventually brought these two distinctly dissimilar men to the presidency. Sweeping the reader from America to Europe, and combining a cast of compelling characters with probing explorations of politics, courage, idealism, love, friendship and life, John Adams, is bound to be the most talked about book of the autumn.
