    Best book in print for adults

    There are a number of books to choose from on Samuel Adams but this book is the best place to start. It is fair, balanced, easy to read and well researched.
    My only criticism is that it is not longer.

    The one man responsible for the United States

    I am shocked and amazed. Shocked that I never knew the critical role that Samuel Adams played in what is now the United States. I am amazed at how he was able to start with a clear idea of rights and liberty and then influence first Boston, then Massachusetts, New Enland, and finally all 13 colonies. He did this through study and decades of writings that were distributed and internalized by the colonists. Samuel Adams was fearless, unwavering, and absolutely brilliant. He got thousands of people into action - and led them to make difficult choices at that. Mark Puls gave such a clear narrative while giving a valuble context to the unfolding story.

    About time

    A fine bio. of a forgotten founder without whose prodding war might not have happened for many years, perhaps until Washington was to old to be in charge

    A Great Book about the Father of the American Revolution!

    This books tells of how Adams put together the Colonists to act for their own freedoms. Tells a lot about how he was very vocal and took great pains to tell the truth against the British and their occupying military. He went on to become governor of Mass and in his older age did not want attention for his accomplishments because he felt that people should have their individual rights and leaving limited powers to the government. Very informative and uplifting to see what they went through to give us what we have today. Does not talk about his beer companies much and is somewhat short.
