    What are you favorite books?


    I'll start:


    John Adams by David McCullough.


    This book should be required reading for every American. Brings the fight for Independence alive like nothing I've read before. George Washington fought the war for Independence, but John Adams made the case for it. He's not talked about as much as Washington, Jefferson, Franklin or even Madison, but was a central figure in our founding, maybe even the central figure.

    Pulitzer Prize winner and was made into an HBO miniseries by the same name. Probably my favorite book ever, but I didn't enjoy the miniseries nearly as much, it did not do the book justice. The book is so thoroughly researched, but the research is woven into a compelling story and reads more like a novel than history. 6 stars out of 5.
