One might be suspicious of a biography of John Quincy Adams by Robert Remini, the modern expert on Andrew Jackson who confronted Adams in two presidential campaigns. Remini, however, does an outstanding job of succinctly recounting the private and public life of our sixth president. By intellect, education, and experience, Adams seemed an outstanding candidate for president. Though accomplished in many areas, especially diplomacy, Adams failed as an effective president. The author identifies those traits of Adams which prevented him from being the type of president most expected. Remini's book is a tribute to this presidential series.
