John Adams - David McCullough - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of John Adams:

The life of the 2nd president.

My favorite John Adams quote from the book:

"I read my eyes out and can't read half enough...the more one reads the more one sees we have to read."

Questions to ponder while reading John Adams:

Did you realize the Founding Fathers were so human?

Did you realize John Adams was so stubborn and opinionated?

My review of John Adams:

I wish I were so well-read.

I admire the principles of John Adams.

I love how human he is.
