In this powerful, epic biography, David McCullough unfolds the adventurous life journey of John Adams, the brilliant, fiercely independent, often irascible, always honest Yankee patriot who spared nothing in his zeal for the American Revolution; who rose to become the second president of the United States and saved the country from blundering into an unnecessary war; who was learned beyond all but a few and regarded by some as "out of his senses"; and whose marriage to the wise and valiant Abigail Adams is one of the most moving love stories in American history.

This is history on a grand scale -- a book about politics and war and social issues, but also about human nature, love, religious faith, virtue, ambition, friendship, and betrayal, and the far-reaching consequences of noble ideas. Above all, "John Adams" is an enthralling, often surprising story of one of the most important and fascinating Americans who ever lived.

Author Bio
David McCullough
David McCullough, who made his mark writing popular history and biography, grew up in Pennsylvania and credits his reading of the classics--and movies like SERGEANT YORK--as influences on his choice of career. After earning a B.A. from Yale University, McCullough worked for Time, Inc.--which he termed his "apprenticeship")--, as a writer for the U.S. Information Agency, and then for American Heritage magazine. He has also written for public television and has appeared on SMITHSONIAN WORLD and THE AMERICAN EXPERIENCE as host. His first book was THE JOHNSTOWN FLOOD. His later book THE GREAT BRIDGE, about the building of New York's Brooklyn Bridge, is noted for its detailed portrait of architect John Roebling. For his book on the Panama Canal, THE PATH BETWEEN THE SEAS, McCullough was awarded a National Book Award. He has also written on three U.S. presidents: MORNINGS ON HORSEBACK (about Theodore Roosevelt), TRUMAN, and JOHN ADAMS.
