John Adams – David McCullough

Really an enjoyable read of a fascinating man I wish we still had around today. He did his best to stay out of the ugliness of partisan politics while serving the country with whatever was needed. As a twenty year old student he wrote a classmate examining the rise and fall of empires which included the following: “Soon after the Reformation a few people came over into the new world for conscience sake. Perhaps this (apparently) trivial incident may transfer the great seat of empire into America. It looks likely to me.”

Highly recommend reading your own.
