David McCullough is unmatched in his writing. This book, to me, is his masterpiece. I revisit this book numerous times each year to reread.

I just finished re-reading this book. It is a dense read to be sure, but full of flavor and amazing insights. My favorite is not only learning about John Adams, but also his wife. It is always interesting to find out how a good spouse helps or hinders in someone's life.

Very well written, not dry in the slightest. You will learn so much about the politics of the 18th century.
