My second Joseph Ellis, I’ve come to enjoy his ‘to the point’, ‘no frills’ style of writing. Though McCullough’s “John Adams”, which is cited by Ellis, provides a more in depth and detailed version of much of the same material, Ellis tells it in fewer words, which is not necessarily a bad thing.
After indulging in several non-fictions of the founding years of our nation, John Adams was, for me, the glue that pulled them all together into a coherent understanding of the way it all went down.
My study of the beginning of the United States of America continues with this text by the author Joseph J. Ellis, who is well known and respected as an historian specializing in American history.
