I love David McCullough's writing, and what a great voice. The recent PBS special on Adams was great also and David was a part of that. I recently finished "1776" and much enjoyed it.
I first discovered him when he narrated Ken Burn's "The Civil War" and have followed him since.
One of my favourite CSPAN moments was when he recently testified in front of a Senate committee on education and mourned the dearth of history knowledge(especially US history) and education in our public schools....

I read the same book...I was most impressed with one story about Adams in the McCullough book.

A particular newspaper publisher was writing hateful things about JA. One night this publisher's property caught fire--and who was helping lead the brigade of buckets to save the building? John Adams.

What a great example of integrity.
