Ha! A book review. Toot goes my own horn.

So what you’re saying is… “I just get it for the pictures”? Fine with me Tim.

“Few books (of this or any other genre) are able to immediately pull the reader in, as this one does, through the power of aesthetics. A coffee-table-sized book, “First Freedom” boasts beautiful visual layouts that include maps, paintings, prints of original documents, and (most uniquely) original photographs of dramatized scenes. Taken from scenes of the documentary film of the same name (seen on PBS), these visual delights keep the reader absolutely engaged from page one. (And where they found the actor who is the spitting image of Thomas Jefferson I’ll never know.)” – Tim Ballard
