Rezension bezieht sich auf: Thomas Jefferson (Taschenbuch)
This is a well-written, concise, fair, unbiased, biography of Thomas Jefferson. If you are person who has an interest in Thomas Jefferson and do not have the time or desire to read the prolific and lengthy biographies written about him, then this book is for you.
Bernstein highlights the major ides, accomplishments and the highs and lows of "TJ's" life. You will learn the essentials of this man and walk away with a better understanding of who was Thomas Jefferson and what did he stand for?
The book is well annotated. A chronology of Jefferson's life is provided, as well as, further reading list to continue on if you want more detail on one of our Founding Fathers and 3rd President of the US. Thomas Jefferson was a controversial figure with many conflicting ideas and actions. The author handles this in a "fair and unbiased" manner based on the current information that was available at the time he wrote it.
I highly recommend this book as the starting point for your studies of Thomas Jefferson. I wish there were more autobiographies like this on other "Great Persons" in American history.
