One of the best biographies I have ever read. Learned so much about the Founding Fathers and have a great deal of respect for John Adams.

Enjoy every Roosevelt bio I try. This one had a little more on Elliot, who interests me. Lots of good quotes from primary sources

Like all of McCullough's books, brings the subject alive through primary resources and personalities.
I even found myself interested in the engineering challenges and solutions. The medical and human challenges and personalities like Teddy Roosevelt were what really made me enjoy it though
