    " Maybe it's a little overburdened with facts, but you won't find a better or more comprehensive introduction to Jefferson. Still have to read the other five volumes.... "

    " Malone is the quintessential Jefferson biographer, so this is a must-read if you're into Jefferson. Good details of Jefferson's early life in Virginia. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Omar Masood | 4/5/2009

    " Dry but informative. This is the first volume of Malone's six volume biography of Jefferson. Needless to say, it provides a wealth of information on Jefferson. If you are a student of Jefferson this is a must read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heath | 10/2/2008

    " Unfathomably well-researched, well-written, and comprehensive. Can't wait to read the next five. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ron | 1/10/2007

    " A book from a different time. Published in 1948, this first of a projected multi-volume work gives Jefferson a bye on many of the controversy's which have since embroiled his life. Perhaps it's good the balance the current, tabloid gossip with a solid biography. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theodore | 1/5/2007

    " Very comprehensive. Thouroughly pro-Jefferson, but that's expected in this sort of biography. "
