Men of history often take on legendary status as the years pass. Undoubtedly, biases and misinformation help to skew our understanding of the past. In this new biography of Thomas Jefferson, we are treated to a fresh, albeit contextualized, look at one of the Founding Fathers. Michael Johnson expertly narrates this biography as though he were teaching to a packed lecture hall on a college campus. Even and steady, he nonetheless offers great vocal inflection at key points and effective pauses for those who need to further consider what was just said. Far from clinical, Johnson's delivery brings to life an enigmatic man who ought to be understood in terms of the world he lived in. T.D. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2017]
