Reviews

Walter Isaacson "Time" A masterwork of storytelling.
Gordon S. Wood "The New York Review of Books" By far the best biography of Adams ever written...McCullough's special gift as an artist is his ability to re-create past human beings in all their fullness and all their humanity. In John and Abigail he has found characters worthy of his talent.
Marie Arana "The Washington Post" McCullough is one of our most gifted living writers.
Michiko Kakutani "The New York Times" Lucid and compelling...[Written] in a fluent narrative style that combines a novelist's sense of drama with a scholar's meticulous attention to the historical record.
