Excellent book. I gotta warn you though;

It portrays him as a human being---
No deifed hero worship. Just an ordinary lawyer with fire in his belly and a forceful voice, fighting for what he believes is right. (And an ancestor of mine.)

(My Grandmother, on my mothers side was an Adams. Her great grandfather was John Quincy Adams.)
