    An excellent, highly digestible, "triple biography" of Paine, Monroe, and Jefferson. Ferling is a highly intellectual writer, whose clear prose rarely if ever gets bogged down in details and minutiae, and this book is quite enjoyable for that reason. There is quite enough engaging mate...

    Another remarkable book for author John Ferling. A great book with enough storytelling to make it interesting and enough history so that I learn something. Loved the book. ...

    An interesting lens through which to view the American and French Revolutions. However, there were some inaccurate historical details, such as when Ferling referred to Louis XVIII as "the nephew of Louis XVI." ...

    John Ferling weaves the stories of Jefferson, Paine and Monroe beautifully through the Revolutionary War. However, the war is the main character and has never held my interest as does the Civil War, so this is being put on my "Chose Not to Finish" shelf - but I'm sure someone else will...

    A book that does indeed cover a gap in American political history. This is in essence a triple biography without the pain. Thomas Paine and James Monroe are the answers to trivia questions or brief mentions in history books as, respectively, the author of Common Sense and the 5th Presi...

    I enjoyed this different perspective on the American and French Revolutions. The author is a little prone to speculation, but is plenty clear when doing so. The choice of Jefferson, Paine, and Monroe is a bit odd to me but it is interesting to trace their lives side-by-side, though...

    I received this book through a Goodreads Giveaway. I would like to thank the publisher for sending me this book. In Apostles of Revolution, John Ferling presents a wide ranging Atlantic (albeit white Atlantic) narrative of the revolutionary "Age of Paine" extending from the 1770s t...
