Review:

"This is an outstanding biography; Adams will not have to be redone for this generation."--Harry W. Fritz, Library Journal (starred review)

"This is a wonderful biography of John Adams--more revealing of his personal qualities than Peter Shaw's The Character of John Adams, more integrative of his public and private life than Page Smith's John Adams. . . . By inserting short sketches of the other leading founders, Ferling places Adams carefully among them and delineates Adams's preeminent contribution as a revolutionist and nation builder."--Ralph Ketcham, American Historical Review

"Substantive, well crafted . . . Ferling's Adams now has claim to the standard biography of its subject."--Richard Alay Rherson, Journal of the Early Republic

"Ferling has produced a dense, rich text and a wealth of information on our second president. In this sprightly book, he succeeds admirably in placing Adams in a context that is both true to his own time and relevant to ours."--Wendell Garrett, New York History

"Better than any other full-scale biography to date, Ferling's book places Adams in the context of his swirling times and makes clear why he deserves our admiration for his political courage and stubborn independence." --Joseph J. Ellis, the New England Quarterly
