Praise

“Craig Nelson’s lovely new biography provides cogent reasons why the man who wrote Common Sense has often been neglected by the cheerleaders for the American Revolution.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A rewarding new biography . . . as much a primer on the Enlightenment as it is the story of the stay-maker from Thetford-and all the better for it.”
The New Yorker
