    I cannot question Meacham's credentials as he's a Pulitzer winner but the topics here are presented without much explanation. He just points to a single thing give a brief description then jump out to another topic. Because of that the book looked more of an overview of the life of Thomas Jefferson than a factual one.

    The art of Power gives me a whole new perception of President Thomas Jefferson. He has some negative traits but that's him. He's a human just like us, he may have some views that I don't disagree but that's what makes him one of the greatest leaders of our country.

    This book is informative but it's not an exciting read. It never puts you in the perspective of Thomas Jefferson. Perhaps his style of writing doesn't suit me.
