Every year about this time I try to read a biography of one of the founding fathers. This year I think it will be Walter Isaacson’s Benjamin Franklin: An American Life.
A few others that I’d recommend considering are:
- John Adams by David McCullough
- 1776 by David McCullough
- And–although not a founder–Dinesh D’Souza’s very good book Ronald Reagan: How an Ordinary Man Became an Extraordinary Leader
