Most people remember John Quincy Adams, if they remember him at all, as the presidential bridge between James Monroe and Andrew Jackson. Author Nagel has written an excellent book meant to broaden our knowledge of Adams, and Jeff Riggenbach beautifully narrates the story as interesting, vital historical biography. Riggenbach’s voice is, as always, unemotional and straightforward, but you get the sense that he wants you to understand this man. His inflections and vocal shadings urge you to listen further and to really appreciate this most accomplished public servant. Riggenbach also uses his deep voice to set a dignified tone, which fits his subject like a diplomatic white glove. Some minor technical glitches, like long pauses, should not detract from an excellent listening experience. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
