Jessica: John Quincy Adams

John Quincy Adams: A Public Life, a Public Life, by Paul Nagel

This biography spent only one chapter on JQA’s presidency, however, I didn’t feel that it was lacking for information. I liked the fact that the book was so much about JQA’s entire life and his broad rage of acheivements. I never realized just how many things he had his hands in.

I also felt that the book gave a good insight into JQA’s family life as well. From his parents, wife, children and grandchildren. The reader gets a sense of JQA’s daily life and not just his political highs and lows.
