      Looking around the gathered Nobel Prize winners he had invited to a White House dinner, John F Kennedy declared, I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone That quotation, included by Jon Meacham in his enthralling biography of Jefferson, gives a measure of the man, and the man fully deserves such a biography Not that it s a simple ha Loo [...]

      Seeking to continue my trek to better understand the birth of America and its Founding Fathers, I tackled Meacham s biography on Thomas Jefferson Choosing to infuse literary breath into one of the key actors in much of the early creation of the state and its constitutional foundations, Meacham not only offers an over arching narrative, but delves into the corners of Jefferson s life, allowing the reader to have a better and well rounded approach to this key historical figure While Meacham offe S [...]

      I wanted to devour this book the way I had with bios of the other Founding Fathers, but this one was of a slog than I anticipated Meacham does a good job connecting all the big historical touchstones of Jefferson s remarkable life writing the Declaration of Independence check serving as an ambassador to France check serving in Washington s cabinet check winning election as the third president of the U.S negotiating the Louisiana Purchase, and founding the University of Virginia I wanted to devou [...]

      I loved this book Really delves into the psyche of Thomas Jefferson, chipping to the core on the things that make him tick Meacham spends a lot of time in Virginia laying the groundwork for Jefferson s character how he loved control but hated conflict And then he builds the bridge to the presidency detailing his struggles with the executive powers that Hamilton put upon the presidency during Washington s terms and then how he embraced these very powers in his own Presidency We get to kno I loved [...]
