This book came from a very different perspective than the Puritan Oligarchy one . . . kind of presented the Puritan experiment as a success, never mentioned the revoking of the charter . . . but it was nice to get more biographical detail about a leader and kind of see where he was coming from, rather than just stereotypes and sound-bytes (which is what we get from most history books or overviews of the era.)
