I'm currently reading "Founding Brothers" by Joseph Ellis. If you enjoy colonial/early American History this is very good. Ellis discusses some of the defining events and political turmoil the early leaders of our country faced in the first decade after the Constitution was ratified.
This book reads much better than most historical scholarship. I am an avid reader of colonial American history and Revolutionary era history and you really don't have to have a detailed knowledge of this era to get a lot out of this book.
Grape works as a soda. Sort of as a gum. I wonder why it doesn't work as a pie. Grape pie? There's no grape pie. - Larry David
