Description:

“A true triumph… brilliant.” – Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs

Former Newsweek editor Jon Meacham’s last book American Lion was a best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Andrew Jackson. In his highly anticipated new book, he takes on Thomas Jefferson, a man of genius and contradiction who embodied both the promise and shortcomings of the American experiment. Passionate about many things – women, books, science, architecture, Paris – the charismatic president loved America most. He strove repeatedly, in spite of fierce opposition, to realize his vision of popular government in an era of partisan division, economic uncertainty and external threat.
