In this powerful, epic biography, David McCullough unfolds the adventurous life-journey of John Adams, the brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot who spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution; who thought, wrote, and spoke out for the “Great Cause” come what might; who traveled far and wide in all seasons and often at extreme risk; who rose to become the second President of the United States and saved the country from blundering into an unnecessary war; who was rightly celebrated for his integrity, and regarded by some as “out of his senses”; and whose marriage to the wise and valiant Abigail Adams is one of the moving love stories in American history.

Much about John Adams’s life will come as a surprise to many. His rocky relationship with friend and eventual archrival Thomas Jefferson, his courageous voyage on the frigate Boston tin the winter of 1778 and his later trek over the Pyrenees are exploits few would have dared and that few listeners will ever forget.

Like his masterful, Pulitzer Prize-winning biography Truman, David McCullough’s John Adams has the sweep and vitality of a great novel. This is history on a grand scale — an audiobook about politics and war and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, It is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.

    MESSAGE TO BIOGRAPHERS: Tidy up your prose, sharpen your story-telling, knowledge up on your source material and bring your entire bag of game, because the gauntlet has been chucked, the bar has been raised and David McCullough has taken off his literary glove and pasted all of you upside your second rate heads. The challenge is before you.

    This is, WITHOUT QUESTION, the best biography I have ever read. It is also, again WITHOUT QUESTION, the best story on the American Revolution and the creation of the United States of America that I have ever read.

    The breadth, depth and detail of this biography is unbelievable. Epic does not begin in describe it. It is epic epicness on an epically epic scale. This is only appropriate given the subject matter.

    After finishing this book, I believe the John Adams is the “founding father” I most admire. By making that statement, I do not want to downgrade the importance of the others. Jefferson was arguably more intelligent and was clearly the better writer. Washington was the most beloved and admired figure and without his leadership, the fledgling country would not have had a much needed symbol to rally around and the revolution may very well have failed. Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Paine, James Madison, Samuel Adams, John Jay and all the rest deserve to be acknowledged for their significant contributions.

    So why John Adams? Two simple but very important reasons. First, John Adams, through the beautiful prose of McCullough, came across to me as the quintessential HONORABLE MAN. True, he was short tempered and intellectually vain in so far as he very much desired to be acknowledged as “great” by his countrymen. He was a man with many faults.

    However, he NEVER allowed any of his shortcomings or personal desires to influence any decision he made or any action he took. He was a ROCK OF INTEGRITY and every action he took and decision he made (though not always correct in hindsight) was what he genuinely BELIEVED to be in the best interest of the country. Thus, he came across in this story as the person who most aptly illustrated the qualities of INTEGRITY, VIRTUE AND MORAL FORTITUDE.

    In contrast, Jefferson’s “behind the scenes” attacks on Adams and his inability to even acknowledge the same later on struck me as shallow and less than admirable. I point that out not to bash Jefferson (who I also admire) but to demonstrate that even the best of men had moments when they did not act in accordance with their conscience. Everyone that is, except John Adams, who never seemed to waiver from the path his conscience set before him.

    The second reason, and one that goes hand in hand with the first, is the absolute devotion, respect and love that he and his wife, Abigail, displayed for one another throughout their lives. Call me sappy and overly sentimental, but I was absolutely awe struck by the level of commitment and affection that they felt and showed to one another even across great distances and during long years when they hardly even saw each other. John and Abigail drew strength and comfort from one another in a way that was special and unique.

    This just cemented for me the truly exceptional nature of John Adams’ character. He made me proud to be an American and to have such men in my country’s history. Anyway, to sum up, I loved this book and give it my HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION!!! 6.0 Stars.

    One final note: for those of you that listen to audiobooks, I wanted to point out that I listened to the unabridged version (all 30+ hours of it) narrated by Nelson Runger and Mr. Runger did an amazing job that I believe added both to my enjoyment and absorption of the material.

    I LEARNED SO MUCH……..
    I’m moved – deeply moved……
    at this ‘book’ and ‘partly’ at myself. SOMETHING HAS SHIFTED INSIDE ME THROUGH THIS READING EXPERIENCE. A handful of books have done this for me –but not usually ‘two’ in a very short period of time! But….. I can’t deny what’s so.

    SNAP CRACKLE POP……. BOOKS THAT CHANGE OUR THINKING – OUR ACTIONS – MUST BE REMEMBERED….. this is another one of those books!!!!!!

    A light switch is turned ‘on’ in my brain for the first time in almost 65

    SNAP CRACKLE POP……. BOOKS THAT CHANGE OUR THINKING – OUR ACTIONS – MUST BE REMEMBERED….. this is another one of those books!!!!!!

    A light switch is turned ‘on’ in my brain for the first time in almost 65 years. I haven’t been reading biographies about past Presidents. I have some natural interest in Kennedy – Lincoln – and – Obama — but I’ve never been the girl to run to the history or political sections in book stores… seeking out past Presidents to read about. WHY THE HECK HAVEN’T I? Fear of boring dry reading?? It’s amazing how shallow and small my thinking is sometimes.

    Has anyone else ever cried when coming ‘nose-to-nose’ with your own stupidity- laziness- and/or shame for allowing yourself to be ignorant? Really angry at yourself? I’ve been reading this book for 4 to 6 weeks ( other books too), but a couple of weeks ago I broke down: cried like a baby ….. facing the reality of HOW MUCH I DON’T KNOW.
    At the same time ….,
    I WAS FASCINATED WITH THIS BOOK – THIS STORY –
    I’m left wanting to explore more!!!! Hallelujah! 🙂

    John Adams worked his ass off LONG HOURS A DAY – RISKING HIS HEALTH – making constant sacrifices and contributions with the most humble heart!! A GREAT MAN!!!

    I’ve read my share of the “The dreaded multiple POV novels”. I’m discovering it’s possible that reading historical books about past Presidents might ‘not’ be drudgery or work any more than it’s been to read about Jack or Libby taking turns narrating every other chapter. If more books about past Presidents are ‘this good’…. ( good storytelling), I have nothing to fear!

    I FEEL LESS RESISTANCE TO READ ABOUT MORE PAST PRESIDENTS!!! ….That’s what’s shifted!!! I’m ready to read another, and another! Ha ha …. we certainly have plenty of past presidents to choose from!!! 🙂

    JOHN ADAMS – inspired me!!!! His character was outstanding!!
    Were all Presidents this honest, ‘loving’ toward his wife and children, down to earth, decent, …..really decent? He was bright – worked hard. Model integrity.
    I didn’t think of him as a politician. I can’t imagine Trump ever saying these word….
    “I only wish I were better qualified” …..John Adams

    Ohhhhhh, and Abigail…. did you not love this woman???? Up at 5am to begin her day… taking care of the needs of their family and home. – running a farm during war – loss of children while her husband was away -sadness – loneliness- missing her partner –
    She was a courageous independent woman ahead of her days.

    I knew nothing about John Adams relationship with Thomas Jefferson. Friends, ……then enemies, then friends again.
    John Adams and Thomas Jefferson ‘both’ died on July 4, 1826, —same day!!!! Blows my mind!!!
    John Adams lived longer than any other American President. I wonder if it was all that Apple cider he drank every day. 🙂

    Question to those who are history buffs? Suggestions of ‘which’ President I might read about next? A few suggestions? And by whom?

    Wonderful book…. great opening for me

    Much thanks goes to David McCullough!!!!

    Since reading John Adams I have continually been reminded of my delusion of our country’s history. Today as I saw the conclusion of the John Adams’ series on HBO I realized I was one of those John Adams saw as “deluded” by the artistic portrayal of our history in Trumbell’s “Declaration of Independence.” Adams was right. Too many of us believe Trumbell’s view of the Declaration of Independence not acknowledging the many difficulties over many years before and after the signing of that great docu

    I’m reminded of that as we too often expect other countries to simply get their act together over a short space of time to form a more free country such as we enjoy. It was never easy. It shall never be easy. There must be always those within the country who are willing and able to do something to make a difference. It takes many making a difference and it takes respect for one another–never simple. Much happens in the process in the making of people. God raises up good and able men and women to make a difference among every people.

    An important book to read.
