"Lively and illuminating . . . leaves the reader with a visceral sense of a formative era in American life." --The New York Times

"Masterful. . . . Fascinating. . . . Ellis is an elegant stylist. . . . [He] captures the passion the founders brought to the revolutionary project . . . . [A] very fine book." --Chicago Tribune

"Learned, exceedingly well-written, and perceptive." --The Oregonian

"Lucid. . . . Ellis has such command of the subject matter that it feels fresh, particularly as he segues from psychological to political, even to physical analysis. . . . Ellis's storytelling helps us more fully hear the Brothers' voices." --Business Week
