Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by John Meacham (Random House, 2012). This fantastic look at Thomas Jefferson was a nice complement to the biography of John Adams I read a few years ago (by David McCullough). I find those two founding fathers absolutely fascinating. I was very interested in Thomas Jefferson. He was a private man, and yet he was such a visible part of the founding of the country. Mr Meacham did a fantastic job of giving us a glimpse of this complex personality. I don’t feel I know him, but I feel I know as much as there is to know. It piqued my interest once again in the founding of our nation. Recommended. Digital review copy.
