This engaging and sympathetic biography reveals the prolific founding father who Thomas Jefferson described as the greatest man in the world. We see Madison the legislator, writer, Secretary of State, president, and elder statesman. Perhaps most importantly, we see a man who believed implicitly in the mutual dependence of democracy and individual freedom and whose life was guided by this philosophy. Accordingly, our constitutional guarantees of civil and religious liberty are in many ways his legacy.

    " This is biography and history written for the lay reader, but it is quite scholarly in tone and content. I have read a great deal about the founding fathers, but still found new and interesting material in this work. He makes a good case that Madison was "the" founding father, and almost succeeds. "

    " A good relatively short biography of a patriot and diplomat who was perhaps over his head as president. "

    " Madison never seems to get any love, taking a back seat to superstars like Washington, Jefferson and Adams. But nice to remember how instrumental he was in shaping our country. "

    " This book killed me. Torture to read and I retained nothing. Anyone have a better recommendation for a book about Madison? "
