Maybe its me but I believe that both John Adams and his son, John Quincy are under appreciated in american history. This particular book is an example of what I am talking about. JQA labored for about 16 years in the House of Representatives where he fought against slavery and was a thorn in Andrew Jackson's side for 8 years. This is a quick read and afterward you are left with a good amount of respect for Adams.
