Here is Jefferson as 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.

E Herrmann has a perfect voice, timing & delivery for audio books, what a loss at his passing. Jon Meacham is one of the best historians, however, this particular person of Jefferson a puzzle, contrary in his views, rather a bigot. There was little in his life I found to respect, certainly only agreeing on few ideas. Jefferson refers to much on his plantation as being his 'work', what a laugh. He had untold slave labor to gratify his every desire (pun intended.) I found him vain to the extreme, insecure, attention seeking & the great need to be recognized as brilliant, if not just approved by the public. Guess that makes him a very normal human & politician.
