Publisher's Summary

Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) served his country in many capacities - architect, naturalist, and linguist, author of the Declaration of Independence, and President of the United States. Not a conventional autobiography, this memoir is more of a summary of his life's work. Begun in 1821 at the age of 77, Jefferson provides a detailed account of his young life and the period in which he wrote the Declaration. The work includes his comments on the Articles of Confederation, his experiences as governor of Virginia, ambassador to France, and observations of the French Revolution.

Not much there

I had hoped this would be a lot more than it actually turned out to be. Being his autobiography I kind of assumed it would cover his life. It covered his heritage and basically the Declaration of Independence it was 42 minutes long. I was left wanting surly at least his presidency and the revolution it’s self would’ve been worthy of some note.
