Thomas Jefferson ----- Misinterpreted
This is another biography skewed to pretend to have something that all of the other many previously written books on Thomas Jefferson does not have, in order to attract attention and sell books. Unfortunately, it is another biography that continues to sour, unjustly, the reputation of Thomas Jefferson, having information that is really only borne of nothing new in fact and a lot new in imagination and opinion of the author. This book would be better called "Thomas Jefferson --- Misinterpreted". I do not recommend this book to anyone who cherishes objectivity. Instead, I recommend reading "The Jefferson-Hemmings Myth: An American Travesty" by Eyler Robert Coates, a book that tells, after all the sensationalist headlines have done their damage, the rest of the TJ-Sally story regarding the DNA evidence that actually proves others fathered Sally's children, not Thomas Jefferson, and, "West Point: Character Leadership Education...Thomas Jefferson" by Norman Thomas Remick, a book that brings an unbiased understanding of Thomas Jefferson into clear focus by using the actual readings and writings of Jefferson himself as sources for the epic of the USA, using West Point allegorically for the USA.
