  • John Adams is hot these days. First came the eerie parallels to the Bushes: A competent but uninspiring vice president succeeds a charismatic president, serves only a term, is defeated by a liberal southerner, but lives to see his son and near-namesake restore the dynasty by winning the electoral vote but not the popular vote against a populist from Tennessee. Now comes something even more exciting for his reputation: America’s most beloved biographer, David McCullough, has plucked Adams from the historic haze, as he did Harry Truman, and produced another masterwork of storytelling that blends colorful narrative with sweeping insights.
