"Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power" gives readers Jefferson the politician and president, a great and complex human being forever engaged in the wars of his era. Philosophers think; politicians maneuver. Jefferson's genius was that he was both and could do both, often simultaneously, catapulting him into becoming the most successful political leader of the early republic, and perhaps in all of American history.

I cannot imagine a better biography of Jefferson. It's very readable, and well worth your time.

I've been trying for 30-45 minutes to renew Thomas Jefferson and going in circles .I've done this before with no problem. What's with this crappy system?

Hard to imagine that a biography of a historical figure could be considered a page turner, but I really had a hard time putting this book down. This is a well written, fascinating account of this very influential man's life.
