Long criticized for her Freudian review of Jefferson's life, the book is none-the-less exhaustively researched and annotated, and well written. I'm reading it to learn more about Sally Hemings. This was the first autobiography to give their alleged affair more credance than a footnote.

Danna In last night's episode of 'Doc Martin', a new character diagnoses Martin as having Asperger's Syndrome and points out that he is the company of many successful men, Thomas Jefferson among them. Have you ever read that in your pursuit of info about this president?

Rachel No, never read that. Jefferson was very emotional, and extremely attached to his family, which I don't think sounds like Asperger's.
