Lauren B: John Quincy Adams

John Quincy Adams, by Harlow Giles Unger

This was one of my favorite Presidential biographies so far! I think in a lot of the early presidencies, the rich history is just too tempting for the author and they often stray away from the actual person they’re writing about. Not so with this one – the focus on JQA really brought him to life.

I loved JQA. He was kind of an idiot about the politics and the personal relationships sometimes, but I love that he just does his own thing and screw parties and politics and everyone else. He was totally the Honeybadger. He DON’T. CARE. He just don’t give a shit.

I would totally read more by Harlow Giles Unger, too! Great author!
