I loved this book, read it when I was a sophomore in high school and could reread it over and over. It was more than just a history lesson for me, it was an intro to political thinking and highly influenced and inspired me. His ideas and way of thinking are extremely interesting. Brilliantly written. Highly recommend.

....yet another book of historical importance that sees little of the light of day; yet it was instrumental in rallying people to seek their independence!

This is a must have and must read. This is the book that sparked up the American Revolution against the King of England and was the first item that articulated what the colonies were already thinking about. This book provided basis and a initiative to Declaration of Independence, so anyone who enjoys or wants to know historical meaning of our nation, should have a copy.
